Event description

Description

This intensive Digital Illustration 2 day course aims to give students the fundamentals of using Adobe Illustrator for adapting and enhancing hand-drawn images as well as learning how draw from scratch digitally.

Learn from professional illustrator Melissa Doran (www.goradiate.ie) who illustrated the number one best selling wildlife book Naturama, and its companion book, My Naturama Nature Journal, using Adobe Illustrator. Melissa is an Adobe Certified Expert in Illustrator, has a masters in Digital Media Technology and has six years teaching experience.

Along with techniques such as how to digitise hand drawn sketches, and how to incorporate hand coloured textures, participants will learn how to set up documents, add and manipulate text, and save images for print and web formats.

Everyone's encouraged to make the techniques their own during class time - with lots of exercises and practise time built in, and you will be provided with detailed notes to ensure you fully understand the techniques and get the most from the class.

This class is suitable for people with an interest in design who have some computer experience - you don't have to have any previous experience with Illustrator. As well as complete beginners, it is also suitable for people who have some experience and want to expand their Illustrator toolkit and becoming more efficient in their workflow. No prior knowledge of Illustrator is assumed and everything is explained from scratch step by step. It is a unique course in that you get to practice and explore both practical and creative applications of the techniques you learn and the small class size (max 5) means everyone gets lots of attention.

The calss runs on June 23rd and 24th from 9.30am to 4.30pm both days.

Participants bring their own laptop (and mouse!) with Illustrator installed (a free trial is available at adobe.com).

Testimonials from recent participants:

'Melissa’s workshop is a fun and informative way to ease into the world of illustrator. She has a great way of explaining the basics while giving you the tools to advance on your own time and at your own pace. She provides many fantastic insider tips that you might not get anywhere else. Highly recommend!' - Kate Conway

'I can thoroughly recommend this Digital Illustration workshop. I had wanted to learn Illustrator for a long time but found it very intimidating and too complex to figure out alone. After just two days Melissa had left me with a solid understanding of how to navigate the system, use the key tools and decipher the associated terminology. Melissa’s extensive knowledge of the system coupled with her passion for illustration and open teaching approach enabled us to clearly understand how these tools could be applied to our own artwork. The class size is just right and the location and set up lends itself perfectly to this creative class. If you would like to get to grips with Illustrator and want to avoid the usual mundane corporate type course then look no further!' -Hilary Glynn
