No previous drawing experience required! Everyone can learn to illustrate using vectors. Participants will learn the basics of Illustrator, how to create smooth lines and shapes with the Pen Tool, choose complementary colour palates to design beautiful unique illustrations. Projects throughout the week include how to make stylized portraits, leafy botanicals, colourful landscapes, animals, icons, and more. Participants will develop with a variety of illustrations, ready to be shared online or in print, and the skillset to continue illustrating at home!
