Private Adobe Illustrator Lessons Near You

The world of graphic design has evolved much further than the clipart of yore, which might have been fun, but featured only lifeless, basic images. These types of images (such as jpeg, tiff, and gif) are designed to remain mostly static. Although they can withstand some enlarging, they're based on pixels and become distorted quite quickly. 

Adobe Illustrator empowers graphic designers, visual artists, and marketers to create vector images, which can be infinitely shrunk or enlarged — without compromising the integrity or quality of the original image. This means a single logo image file, designed as a vector image in Adobe Illustrator, can be minimized to be used as an icon or blown up 10,000 times for use on a billboard. Both images remain crisp and clear. Imagine the possibilit

...

ies of having this kind of versatility (the ability to twist, turn, revise, edit, shrink, and grow) with any design you create. With Adobe Illustrator the visual possibilities and design applications are limitless!

Why Learn How to Use Adobe Illustrator?

In addition to having the ability to create highly versatile graphics, images, logos, and other designs, learning Adobe Illustrator opens up a myriad of professional opportunities in media arts and other industries. You can get hired on in the marketing department of a business in any industry. You could work as a designer for a graphic design company or handle graphics in a marketing agency. Professionals who know Adobe Illustrator also have opportunities in gaming and animation. You could even become an Adobe Illustrator teacher on TakeLessons!

With a background in Adobe Illustrator, you can start your own business, working as a freelance graphic designer. You can create fun, goofy images and put them on lapel pins or print them onto t-shirts, make posters, stickers, or stencils. In Adobe Illustrator, you can test the limits of your creativity in a limitless graphic environment. 

The Best Way to Learn Adobe Illustrator and What You'll Study in Classes

Sure, it's easy to find free Adobe Illustrator classes online — even Adobe offers tutorials. The best way to learn, however, is with a private Adobe Illustrator tutor. With a private teacher's undivided attention, you'll get your questions answered quickly and be able to focus on the topics and features that interest you most. 

Plus, no two private lessons are exactly alike! For example, you'll find that Adobe Illustrator classes for kids differ greatly in terms of content and teaching style from Adobe Illustrator lessons for adults. Your private teacher will keep you interested and motivated, while you learn efficiently at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Adobe Illustrator

If you have little or no experience with Adobe Illustrator, then beginner lessons are for you. Your teacher will introduce you to the basics of the software and set you on a path for success — no matter your graphic design goals. In beginner classes, your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Understanding the fundamentals of vector images
  • Navigating menus, panels, controls, and tools
  • Design illustrations using simple shapes
  • Draw lines and curves

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Adobe Illustrator

If you have some familiarity with Adobe Illustrator or Adobe's other Creative Suite products, then you'll likely fare well in intermediate lessons. You'll build upon your basic knowledge and learn to create increasingly complex designs. In intermediate lessons, your Adobe Illustrator teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Color and composition theory
  • Gradients and blending
  • Graphic figures
  • Organize your artwork
  • Logos and the golden ratio

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Adobe Illustrator

Advanced lessons are intended for students who already know their way around Adobe's software. In advanced lessons, you'll have a chance to workshop your designs with a professional and learn highly advanced techniques and tools. Subjects covered in advanced classes depend greatly on the student's individual goals and interests, but your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Infographic design
  • Mastering the pen tool
  • Posing with puppet warp
  • Making and using a custom brush
  • Working with multiple-exposure images

How to Find an Adobe Illustrator Teacher Near You

Before choosing the teacher who's best for you, we recommend perusing several profiles and reading reviews left by other aspiring visual artists or designers, like you.
