Illustrator CC Level 2 Advanced: This course will build upon the knowledge obtained in Level I. We will use the Appearance Panel to add fills, strokes and effects to shapes and type, then save and use a Graphic Style. We will explore different effects such as warp, 3-D and distortion. Students will draw with many different tools, pencil, blob and the shape tools as well as understand the pen tool and Bezier curves. We will study Layers, new type features, Transparency, Symbols, Brushes and many more exciting features. Please contact us regarding pricing and availability. Understand Global and Non-Global colors. Use Global colors in a gradient for fast color editing.Use the live color controls. Use the effects menu with the appearance panel to enhance type and graphic objects with editable, live effects, without altering the underlying structure of the original object. Complex Illustrator layer techniques: Create new layers, change the stacking order, make sub layers, move an object from one layer to another, select objects with the layers panel, lock and hide layers. We rarely cancel classes. If we have someone that is desperate for the training and can't move, we accommodate them for a one-on-one training.
