I have ZERO experience with anything like illustrator. I need legit classes online that can really educate me from home start to finish. I'm a single stay at home mom who needs this to build a career. I have no time to waste and no clue where to go to get started. I do want to eventually be certified ACE to back up my portfolio and hopefully help legitimize me to potential clients. Help a motha' out! What is the best Adobe illustrator Courses online? Access to live training/tutoring is a plus. Thank you anyone who reads this!

Here is some inforamtion:

Adobe Education 

Adobe Education exchange: https://edex.adobe.com/

General Assembly classes: one day. 

https://generalassemb.ly/education/introduction-to-adobe-illustrator-weekend-workshop

These classes changed by the month so you need to go online and find a date.

 

Also let me know where you are located my company is giving private classes on line if need.

Here is a site to find Adobe Certified Instructors:

https://learning.adobe.com/partner-finder.html?products=Illustrator&learningOptions=Customized&partn...

 

I set the filters to Illustrator in USA. You can change countries if necessary. You can filter it down to a state but most instructors work online now-a-days.

In order to build a career you would not only need Illutrator skills, but also know the trade itself that you want to work in. Is that fashion, graphic design, web/mobile design, infographics, packaging, branding?

All of them need (not just slightly) different skillsets and clients will also watch out for that. On top of that a lot of online trainings are focused around these fields of business and it makes a lot of sense to do so.

Im starting with surface pattern design. This is something I know I can do well and can filter into other opportunities I'm interested in later on.

I'm a graphic designer and writing  books about Illustrator. In German.

 

If you are looking for something specific on surface pattern design, you could check out what kind of courses  @Laura Coyle.   or Robin Schneider (Adobe for Fashion) are offering. Both have a youtube channel, so you can check out if you like their teaching styles first.

Hi Mason,

 

Another option: LinkedIn/Lynda is legitimately offering several of their professional Adobe courses at no charge and with no sign-up required.

 

Free LinkedIn Learning Courses on Photoshop, Illustrator & InDesign

 

The class you'd be interested in is the well-regarded Adobe Illustrator Essential Training by "Design Ninja" Tony Harmer... It runs 5½ hours and should get you going in good shape.
