Overview:   In this course, you will use Adobe® Illustrator® 10 to create dynamic graphics using advanced drawing and editing tools, path editing techniques, filter effects, and masks. You'll take advantage of Illustrator features such as the Transparency palette, live effects, and the Appearance palette to create engaging effects.

Prerequisites:   Prerequisites: To ensure your success, we recommend you first take the Adobe Illustrator Level I class, or have equivalent knowledge of Adobe Illustrator Level 1.

Benefits:  Students will use their knowledge of Illustrator's basic features, in conjunction with new, more advanced techniques, to create even more engaging and dynamic illustrations and graphic effects.

Target student:  Anyone who has experience using Illustrator, but who is looking to learn and employ new techniques for enhancing their Illustrator drawings, is an ideal student for this course.

What's Next:  Students wishing to continue their training in Illustrator can cap their skill set by taking our advanced course, Illustrator® 10: Level 3.
