I’ve been trying to play around with Adobe Illustrator for the last couple of months since I’ve been helping my coworkers/friends design their company logo. I’m also trying to design a logo for my foodblog site – right now I’m not satisfied with it.Â I’m ok with drawing the concept etc but when actually trying to implement it in illustrator I have to constantly research on the web for Illustrator tips which is a bit time consuming. So I have made a firm decision to take an evening or weekend Adobe Illustrator course in Vancouver. Looking at several colleges, it appears they are in the range of $350 – $450.Â Here are some schools that offer them – if you know any other, please let me know! Unfortunately it appears all classes have started at the end of January, so I just missed their first few classes.Â I’ll keep an eye out so I won’t miss the next registration.
Adobe Illustrator Course around Vancouver
BCIT Adobe Illustrator Course – I have taken this course before (6 years ago! yikes) and the instructor was really good. I would take the Feb 24th one but the only thing is it’s offered on Friday night. I sometimes have to work late Fridays so it won’t work well with my schedule.
Langara College – I heard good things about Langara, too bad the class just started. I hope the next one is coming soon.
Vancouver Community College – I’ve never taken a course here but it looks like it’s one of the cheapest @ $350. I missed the cutoff again. Dang.
Emily Carr – is the “art school” of Vancouver! They are offering the illustrator class for a cheaper price tag, @ $375. I again missed the cut off and the next one is not until June :(
So it looks like I should keep an eye out on Langara & VCC for the next cohort. If you know of any other colleges, please let me know!
