CorelDRAW is easy to learn, and you'll be amazed at the professional results you can achieve right from the start. Even if you can't draw a straight line, this vector-based software program will help you draw with confidence as you create professional newsletters, greeting cards, web graphics, and logos. In addition, you'll learn how to turn plain photographs into brilliant works of art.   

You'll also delve into graphic design as you learn about line and shape tools, color fills, layers, text tools, page layout, templates, and import and export functions. And you'll discover how to apply special effects including shadows, transparences, 3D effects, distortions, and PowerClips so you can change an ordinary drawing or illustration into a masterpiece.

I started out taking CorelDraw 4 over 20 years ago and had never taken another class, although I had updated along the way, currently to CorelDraw 4X. This class was fun and really taught me about tools that I did not know were available or fully how to use them. There were some other things I wished he had been able to go into more fully, but he did a great job writing out the lessons and making them easy to understand. I have enough information to explore all of this a little more and incorporate it into the things I create. Great job!
