About This Class

In this lesson, I'm going to walk you through creating a clean and modern adaptation of a historical or national monument. This lesson will teach you how to take any intricately detailed building and stripping it down to it's base shapes - which can make an intimidating drawing subject much easier to render.

Since we will be creating this monument using Adobe Illustrator, you'll be able to scale your monument to whatever size you want thanks to the magic of vectors. Your monument will be both print and web ready and will look great both large and small.

This is also a great way to commemorate special trips or destinations that you hope to visit one day!
