Adobe Illustrator 2020 Training

Chicago, Los Angeles, Online

We offer truly unique Illustrator training classes. Our aim is for students to not only master all the skills but also to aquire the creative ability to design beautiful vector artwork. It is for this reason that we are one of the few Adobe Authorized Training Centers (AATC) in the country that develops their own unique courseware.

Students will learn to master Illustrator by completing a series of Real World projects, and leave the training inspired by what they have already created in class.

During the stay at home order all classes will be taught via instructor-led Zoom webinar. Trainees will still have the option of repeating in-person (free of charge) once the restrictions are lifted.

All classes from May 1 will run in our state-of-the-art graphic training labs in Chicago and Los Angeles, as well as online.

Don't settle for an average Illustrator class, sign-up for a Training Connection class!

Onsite Illustrator training available countrywide.

Recent student feedback

5.0 stars Honestly, this class was awesome. I have always wanted to learn more about Illustrator and have been frustrated that my creativity was limited by my understanding of the program. After taking this bootcamp class, I have an entirely new understanding of Illustrator and I'm excited to be able to put these skills to use in my job. Eva was the sweetest teacher and was always available to answer questions and show us real-world examples of projects and ways to use our new skills. I couldn't recommend this program more highly - very grateful to have had this opportunity. Looking forward to returning to take the Photoshop bootcamp class! Thanks! Joel Loera

4.9 stars I have now taken the Illustrator and InDesign classes with Chana and I think that she is amazing. I'm so glad that I took her two classes as well as the Photoshop class with Beverly. I'm now hooked to Adobe and I can't wait to practice at home! I wish that you guys had night or weekend classes because I don't think that my work would let me take more time off. :(Peyton Nealis

4.8 stars Illustrator is definitely a meaty program and Eva was able to streamline the basics very well while adding in further detail of how to maximize the use of all the tools. I can't wait to dive in further on my own time and really master this program. I also look forward to taking any other advanced Illustrator courses Training Connection may offer in the future.
