Adobe Illustrator Classes

Personalized One on One Illustrator Training

Illustrator Classes

Introduction to Illustrator - 2 days

Prerequisite: None.

Please use a mouse or similar device or a Wacom tablet (not a track pad on a laptop).

Custom classes for small groups or one on one are our passion. We start with the basics and assess your current skill level. We can use classroom files or your files or usually a combination of both to customize your training to fit your specific needs. Learn tips and tricks and speed up your workflow.

We also offer standard classes for beginners. We use the Adobe Classroom in a Book series supplimented with custom lessons to teach the basics.


I took a 3 day Illustrator class with Melissa. I want to Thank you for the training. That was the first time I had used Illustrator and now I feel confident that I can perform my new job duties easier. You are very patient and explained everything very well. It was easy for me to follow along and I learned a lot that will help me with my new position in my company. I am sure I will have many more questions once I start using the software more.

I just took your class for Adobe Illustrator CCI (Jan 9th-11th). I had previously scheduled this class back in Nov. at a remote location and due to various issues I had to reschedule for January and I’m so glad that I did.

I was a beginner to Ai and you were very patient with me (and everyone else in the class). You took the time needed during class (and even after class – with me) to make sure everyone felt comfortable and confident in what was covered in each lesson. You shared information and helpful tips on where we can find additional information for Ai for future reference.

I cannot “THANK YOU!!” enough for your patience and understanding the needs of this beginner student.

If I’m ever in need of additional class training for various applications, I will definitely email you to find out if you’re teaching them and schedule accordingly.

Don’t be surprised if you get emails from me in the near future with questions
All the best,

The course that I took from Melissa Piccone was so great! By doing this course online I did not have to purchase airline tickets, get a hotel, find a car, and learn my way around a strange city! I could stay at home or go to my office, she and I could hear each other, she could help me by getting on to my monitor to point out an error, and she could see exactly what I was talking about and I could see and follow her on the second monitor. Plus, I could put my feet up and relax while learning. Her wit, style and passion for teaching and the use of Adobe products was very evident and I would definitely take more courses from her in the future!! A great way to learn!! Thanks Melissa!!

Melissa did a great job explaining everything and keeping her energy up. She kept the pace pretty fast but was very helpful when someone was behind and made to help them individually to catch up.

Melissa was very hands-on in that she showed several ways to do each of the sections in the Illustrator training, using various techniques. She was able to answer all of my questions thoroughly and show examples if necessary.

I absolutely loved our instructor Melissa. She was patient, kind, and funny. She made the class lively and taught me well.

The instructor was great. Very knowledgeable and patient with questions. All around good teacher.
