Attended: Introduction to Adobe Illustrator
Instructor is super helpful and patient, especially if you haven't used design programs before. The time flies by, and you'll get familiar quickly with the program throughout the day. Would recommend to anyone working in the digital field, especially since a lot of professionals have Illustrator as an added skill.

This was my second class with Laura at Spectrum and it was terrific. Very comprehensive and detailed approach. I feel like I now have a strong foundation to use Adobe Illustrator.


Attended: Introduction to Adobe Illustrator
Pretty steep learning curve but I feel like I now understand the basics! The class moved at a good pace. If one of us didn't understand something, Laura walked us back through the steps. She explained things in a clear way that made sense. Will definitely consider doing the intermediate class. Thank you!

Laura was awesome at providing examples and step by step instruction so you could easily follow. I highly recommend if you're interested in getting started with Illustrator.
