Here's what past students are saying about this workshop:

"Really solid class overall. Kim did a great job of breaking each component down piece by piece. Very realistic exercises and examples during class that you would see in a career setting, which always serves as excellent learning material." — Matthew Ahlberg

"The Instructor was amazing and I had a great time learning from her. I would highly recommend her to teach more classes like this at GA. Great personality. Super professional and made it a great and positive experience." — Henry Luc

"The Introduction to Adobe Illustrator class at General Assembly was fantastic! Our instructor Kim Cruickshanks was warm, friendly, and super knowledgable, and the class was a great balance of tutorials and time to create with Kim's support. With lots of great examples to practice with it really helped in understanding and using the tools, and by the end of the day I felt confident in putting together my own logo and basic designs! Definitely a great experience." - Sara B.
