About This Class


In this class we’re going to learn how to get going with layer-art in Adobe Illustrator. You’ll learn how to add depth to your artwork – and you’ll be able to use it for organic forms, layered illustrations, geometric artwork and for prototyping real-world layer-art.

Adobe Illustrator is an amazing layer-art tool since you don’t need real paper or cutting tools, yet you can create illusions of depth really easily. It can be a precursor for getting into 3D and real world layer-art, but it can also be in it’s coolest and most powerful form right in Illustrator – you can easily manipulate shapes and take them into interactive and moving forms!

The class is short, fun and accessible.
