    Course FAQs:

    What is Adobe Illustrator?

    Basically, Illustrator is a vector based graphics design program. The two videos linked below do a good job of explaining what Adobe Illustrator is, and the primary difference between Photoshop and Illustrator.

    Required:

    Adobe Illustrator software. Wait to get it until the orientation for class because Adobe has some great homeschool discounts compared to what you would pay at a store. The whole Creative Cloud (10 to 20 professional level tools) can be gotten for 19.99 a month with the student discount they have.

    2 semester course

    Description:

    We will be creating designs from photos, clip art, original artwork, or other formats that help students learn to use the tools in Illustrator. This course will be project-based. Students will have small projects to turn in regularly. In order to learn to use the Illustrator software, students need to spend some time working with the tools. I will teach students to find their way around in Illustrator, and I will demonstrate the use of many of the tools in class.
