About this workshop

Welcome to Free Fridays!

Our Free Friday Livestreams are here to give you a bite-sized sample of what you’ll learn in our Workshops, Part Time and Immersive courses.

Are you looking to use Adobe Illustrator to design your creative assets, but aren’t sure where to start? This Adobe Illustrator 101 Livestream is perfect for you!

In this free, two-hour livestream tutorial, we’ll teach you to bring your creative ideas to life with Adobe Illustrator. You’ll learn why Illustrator is the industry-standard vector graphics software used by designers and illustrators to create digital graphics, logos, illustrations, and original typography. Then, we’ll cover the basics like file creation, basic tooling, and how to design your own vector image. All in real time, taught by an industry professional.

Join us for Adobe Illustrator 101 to learn the basics, and design creative assets your audience will love!

As an added bonus, a member of our Admissions Team will be joining this livestream to talk to you about the enrollment process for our Part-Time and Immersive courses, and answer your questions regarding course pacing, payment options, career development, and more!

What will the livestream learning experience be like? - Ask questions and build your online network by interacting with fellow classmates and an expert instructor — all in real time via live chatbox and Q&A. - Complete optional classwork to give you a hands-on taste of the subject. - Learn new skills in the comfort of your own home, or on the go!
