This workshop focuses on creating vector illustrations using a variety of techniques on the Macintosh and/or Windows computer platform. You will create object drawings, work with layers and effects, and integrate type in a variety of ways. No prior experience with any drawing program is expected. This workshop is most appropriate for people who do not already use Adobe Illustrator on a regular basis, but who want to master an introductory to intermediate level of technical capability and speed.
Through a series of take home and hands-on Photoshop and instruction files, participants will explore how to fix and enhance photographs by exploring dozens of before and after tips and tricks in a dual-platform computer environment with Mac and Windows computers at each workstation. Exercises progress from beginner level through an intermediate level and each one isolates a different problem to fix. Photos are provided.
