    Illustrator Advanced Training Course

    This Illustrator Advanced Course provides the skills necessary to produce illustrated digital art for fashion, artwork, infographics etc.  It shows you how to work with the in-depth controls of the tools, draw artwork, produce line drawing and use the 3D grid for buildings.  I travel UK wide to deliver Illustrator training and always have a chat prior to the training day to establish your specific needs for the Illustrator training day.  

    Illustrator Courses

    If you would prefer it this Illustrator course can also be adapted so that elements from the Illustrator Introduction course can be mixed with the Illustrator Advanced course or combined with other software such as the Photoshop Introduction course or other Illustrator Training. If required I can provide up to 8 laptops for hire on the day.


    Lifetime Support

    I provide a lifetime support after you have completed the Illustrator Advanced course and you will have a combination of email and telephone contact for always enabling you to approach me with anything covered on the course.




    You will need to have previous experience in Illustrator either from an Illustrator Introduction Course or Illustrator Intermediate or have gained knowledge in the workplace to take this training
