Project Deliverables
By the closing of the class, students will have completed a full vector illustration that will be ready for both print and web use. Students should look to deliver their progressive steps of their piece in their project area so they can track their own progression!

More Information

Students should enter this class with a basic understanding of the Adobe Illustrator drawing tools, ie. pen tool, brush, etc.; however, those using Adobe Photoshop or general drawing programs can follow along as well. Knowledge of these tools will help students stay on course with the flow of the curriculum, but is not required and students will be given brief tutorials to assist with keeping up to speed.
