Course Details

This course focuses on Adobe® Illustrator® CC, the component within Creative Cloud used to create drawn graphics, while enabling its users to integrate content from other domains. With Illustrator's many tools, you will unlock the same creative impulses you have always had as you have picked up a pencil to sketch out an idea. You can capture those multiple ideas and “what ifs” during the creative process in ways that you never imagined. This course covers the Graphic Design & Illustration Using Adobe Illustrator CC objectives to help students prepare for the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) exam. This course is also designed to cover the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) exam objectives.
