Quotes from our Illustrator students

  • "I had a wonderful experience in this 3 day training. I felt like I learned a tremendous amount of information, tips and tricks. The instructors were focused, patient and extremely competent. The Illustrator Day 2 & 3 instructor was quite funny and I appreciated the 80's movie references he used, it brought a sense of lightness to very intense software instruction. I would take courses from you again and would recommend to others, thank you very much."
