About This Class

Have you tried using the pen tool in illustrator, but still get frustrated with it? Do you try to avoid it because you can't get it to work or create the shapes you want it to? Everyone has been there. It takes practice to master the pen tool and Kristy Brown will show you in this course the steps she used to master the pen tool. As for everyone, it was frustrating for her at the beginning, but after taking design classes and tracing different shapes with the pen tool, she finally can say she has control of the pen tool instead of it having control of her. In this course, Kristy Brown will show you what she learned in her design classes to help you master the pen tool. During the course, you will use a practice sheet that will have shapes for you to practice tracing with the pen tool. After practicing, you will have the opportunity to apply your new skills by creating a silhouette or something of your interest to design with the pen tool.
