Hey friendlies, hope your weekend was lovely! Ours was a little gruesome thanks to the Denver Organ Trail & Zombie Crawl. If you followed along on Instagram, then I’m sure you were a little unsure if you wanted to be my friend. I’m a pretty freaky zombie.
I’ve been keeping a secret for a few weeks now and I’m so excited to finally reveal! Brittany of Canvas & Slate and I have been working together these last few weeks and I’m happy to announce that you will be able to take a crash course in Adobe Illustrator. This class will give you the knowledge and tools to help you grow your blog, your business, or your interests. The sky is the limit! I’m a novice. A ridiculously new newbie. But not anymore! Thanks to Brittany, we all have the chance to learn the ins and outs of AI and I couldn’t be more thrilled!!! Brittany has been so wonderful and she’s also created a downloadable invitation printable for all of your October parties. Read all of the deets below. 🙂
Illustrator for Bloggers is a two-week (10-day) online course that includes video lessons, written lectures, tutorials, design activities and a comprehensive class workbook that will be delivered to your inbox after the class site closes. Class instruction will be conducted on a private blog and will remain open for two weeks following the last day of class. After that, students are expected to refer to their class workbooks for instruction in conjuction with the class video tutorials that will remain available indefinitely.
Week 1 will focus on familiarizing you with the Illustrator interface, setting up workspace parameters, designing with color, tools, palettes, and software tips and tricks.
Week 2 will delve deeper into more advanced topics as well as how to create specific graphics for your blog (including blog banners and custom social media buttons).
This is an online crash course in Illustrator. You will be introduced to the software’s most-used tools and techniques as well as basic design concepts. This class was designed for bloggers, but anyone looking for an intro course in Illustrator is welcome to join. Read how to register after the jump!
Class registration is $150. Registration opens today and you can get all set up on the workshop page. After registration is complete, you will receive log-in instructions via email on Friday, November 3rd. Class instruction begins on Monday, November 5th at 8:00 AM EST.

Totally awesome, right? I can’t wait to start!
