About This Class

In this class, you will learn how to draw flowers in Illustrator using basic shapes and tools in Illustrator (no pen or pencil tool required!) and give them a hand drawn effect. This class serves as a basic introduction to digital illustration in Adobe Illustrator for those with no Illustrator or art experience. It is also for those who have Basic/Intermediate Illustrator skills and want to explore tools and effects that may not have been considered before. 

The class guides you through a step-by-step process to create a bright and fun floral-themed Thank You Card. We will start by gathering inspiration, selecting an initial color palette, drawing flowers and floral elements, designing the text, assigning colors, and arranging it all together for a beautiful result!

This class was actually fun to take! I love my flowers! Katerina had so many practical tips. She really took the mystery out of using AI. Beyond the basics I think.
Great class, I learned a lot of skills which will be useful in the future. I really recommend it, she's a good teacher.
