There are many times in blogging and business where you come across a design need, whether it's a blog post graphic, a tweak to your website, or a promotional image for a new product launch or giveaway. This 5-week course is designed to teach creative entrepreneurs and bloggers the fundamentals of using Adobe Illustrator.

Date:  August 24th through September 21st

Format:  This course is made up of 5 60-minute lessons, one for each week of the course. Each lesson will be emailed to participants at the start of the week and added to a password-protected e-course page on the Elle & Company website. 

Week 1   |   Workspace and Tool Panel Basics
Week 2   |   Drawing Basics
Week 3   |   Working with Color and Type
Week 4   |   Transforming, Aligning, and Grouping Objects
Week 5   |   File Saving and Finishing

Required course materials: You will need a computer with internet access and Adobe Illustrator. I recommend buying an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, which gives you monthly access to the latest version of the software. Adobe also offers a free trial for Adobe Illustrator here.

Price:  $250

Extras:  Each lesson will have a tangible learning outcome specifically geared toward bloggers and business owners (i.e. inspiration boards, blog graphics, social media icons, media kits/pricing guides and digitizing type).

A PDF guide will be provided at the outset of the class for cheat sheets and notes, and practice assignments will be made available with each new lesson. 

A live, 2-hour webinar will also be hosted at the end of the 5 weeks for an extended Q&A. For those who aren’t able to attend the live event, the webinar will be recorded and made available to all e-course participants.

The password-protected e-course page with all of the recorded lessons and practice assignments will be made available to participants for 1 full year after the course ends. This allows attendees to take their time moving through the curriculum and reference the lessons as they continue to practice using the program.
