Etana was extremely helpful and very patient with a newbie like me! She was AMAZING!
Q
I learned SO MUCH in just a short amount of time. Etana makes it SO MUCH FUN to learn and it's even more enjoyable because you're actually finally learning! Before Etana I tried a college, endless online courses (snore) and private lessons. They were all boring, not what I needed or just went by way too fast with no one to ask questions to. This experience was AWESOME! And Im SO glad I chose this Instructor out of the others. Great personality, funny sense of humor and learned alot.

Etana was great and helped answer a lot of my questions.

Learn about all the ways to manipulate images from pixel-based images with resolutions to mathematical XML elements like SVG images that can get infinitely big or infinitely small!

This course is a stand-alone course that can help assist in image design, GUI design, or 2D game development!

GIMP and Inkscape are the programs of focus in this course but ask about Photoshop and Illustrator if interested in that direction! GIMP and Inkscape are equivalent FREE software alternatives under the Open Source GPL License.

You can use this software to do image editing to the professional level with no charge unlike Adobe and its expensive software, they are comparable and equally as capable when it comes to professional design!

"Etana is a great consultant. I have known her for many years and when it came time to open a graphic design studio for graphic designer wife, I asked Etana how to best go about it. She took the time to explain to me the ins and outs I would need to know in order to be the business side of the company. Mind you, I can't even color inside the lines so I leave all the design work to my wife and employees. But thanks to Etana I had a better understanding of what I was getting us into before leaping into an unfamiliar business to me."

Private Graphic Design Lessons Near You

Although you might not think of video graphics, logos, fonts, vector images, or raster images as art, they most definitely are. Just because graphic design's highly practical and sought after doesn't mean it isn't a form of art. A simple logo, using perhaps one or two colors and uncomplicated design, has the power to convey a company's entire image and values. In private graphic design courses, you can learn how to make awe-inspiring designs, too. 

Why Sign Up for Graphic Design Classes?

Graphic design is just about everywhere you look. It's not just for making art and poster designs, graphic design's in the fonts you use each day, it's in the products you purchase, the clothes you wear, the books you read, the ads you see, and it helps you identify your favorite brands. As a result, graphic designers have plenty of professional opportunities to work in-house for corporations or marketing companies or to work independently, as freelancers. 

By taking private graphic design lessons, you'll give yourself a leg up and add a high level of polish and sophistication to your designs. With professional training, an attractive portfolio, and broader experience, you'll have more opportunities to land a job or several gigs all in need of your graphic design talents. 

The Best Way to Learn Graphic Design and What You'll Study in Lessons

Sure, you can find lots of free graphic design lessons and tutorials online, but the best way to learn is with help from a private graphic design teacher. In private lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention and the sort of personalized instruction that simply can't be found in online videos or a larger class setting. With immediate feedback, you'll overcome personal challenges and improve your graphic design skills fast. 

Plus, every private course is different. Teachers completely customize lessons, keeping in mind the student's interests, goals, existing knowledge, and preferred learning styles. For example, graphic design lessons for kids differ greatly in terms of course content and teaching methods from graphic design classes for adults. No matter your age or ability, your teacher will keep you motivated and interested, while you learn at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Graphic Design

If you have little or no previous experience in graphic design, then beginner lessons are for you. In these lessons, your graphic design tutor will introduce you to all the basics you need to start designing stunning, effective graphics. Your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Understanding the units of graphic design art
  • Studying lines and shapes
  • Thinking about typography and how font affects mood and appearance
  • Color theory and the psychology of color in marketing and design

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Graphic Design

If you're familiar with the basics of graphic design, then intermediate lessons are for you. In these classes, your teacher will introduce you to new techniques, ideas, and tools that'll help you take your graphic design skills to the next level. In intermediate lessons, your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Consider space and negative space, and how you use it in your designs
  • Focus on texture in visual design
  • Achieving balance and alignment in images
  • Learn to create a visual hierarchy

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Graphic Design

Advanced graphic design classes are intended for individuals who already possess a high level of knowledge in graphic design. In these classes, you'll have the opportunity to work with a professional to improve your technique, designs, and learn to use the latest tools and technology. Topics included in advanced lessons depend greatly on the interests and goals of the student, but your teacher might choose to cover the following subjects:

  • Focus on a specific type of graphic design: marketing, packaging, corporate, website, motion, or publication design
  • Put together and polish your graphic design portfolio
  • Setting up a graphic design business: how to freelance and market yourself as a graphic designer
  • Study UI (user interface) and UX (user experience) design

How to Find a Graphic Design Teacher Near You

If you're ready to take your graphic design skills to the next level, then it's time to find a private graphic design tutor. Luckily, finding a teacher on TakeLessons is easy. A quick search will direct you to an extensive list of experience, qualified graphic design teachers who offer lessons online and in-person to students of all ages and abilities. Before choosing the tutor who's right for you, browse through several teacher profiles and read reviews left by other graphic design students. 

The cost of graphic design classes varies, but most teachers base their rates on the length and frequency of lessons. With so many teachers to choose from, there's also a variety of prices to choose from. Plus, you'll find that investing in private lessons pays off fast, as you master new techniques, improve your skills, and start creating professional designs after just a few lessons!
