About This Class

In this course I will show you how to easily create Mandala Designs working in Illustrator.  This course will focus on working with polygons, the rotate tool, symbols and the pencil tool.  

The possibilities in Mandala creation in Illustrator are endless.  Once you have the template created you can easily use the template to create mandala after mandala.

I really found this class helpful. Very straight forward and to the point! Only I have CS5, is it that I cant do the cmd + A duplicate thing? Apart from that, i'm about to have tons of fun, i'll post some of my stuff :)
