About This Class

Remember coloring with Mom when you were a child?  Of course you do, and so does your Mother. The adult coloring book genre is huge these days.  How about spending time with Mom coloring an illustration you created yourself?

I wanted to create a class before Mother’s Day demonstrating how to create this illustration on adobe illustrator, so you and your mother can coloring together again.

This brief class is just one lesson that includes setting up the workspace + art board, selecting a trendy font, and creating the flowered background.

If you don’t already have Adobe Illustrator, you can download a free trial on

I also created a 4-minute YouTube tutorial about downloading free Adobe Illustrator CS2. The link is in the Class Project section below.
