All of Al’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Al’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Adobe Illustrator

Vector drawing program for designing: logos, packaging, flyers etc.

Adobe InDesign

As an experienced Art Director for over thirty years, my program of choice has become Indesign. It is a desktop publishing program. The choice for creating multiple page layouts such as:newspapers, newsletters. Including: Ads, postcards, business cards or any collateral.

The classes I have instructed for over six years have included a good combination of InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator in that they intuitively work best together over any other program such as their nearest competitor Quark Express.

Adobe Photoshop

As an experienced Art Director for over thirty years, have found Photoshop to be an essential tool to edit photography. However, it can be used to create posters, advertisements of all types.

In the classes I have instructed for over six years, my students have learned the best practices of Photoshop's key uses. They first learn about the basic tools, layers and composition, then onto advanced image manipulation including page layout for posters.

Desktop Publishing

I used InDesign or Quark to produce a variety of desktop publishing publications such as: ads, newsletters or newsletters. My experience will be an asset to any student trying to produce any of these.

Drawing

My thirty years of graphic design experience always includes a series of hand drawn images. My classes will include character drawing, perspective drawing, line drawing, shading, still life and figure.

Macintosh

I have over twenty years of Mac knowledge. I will teach Adobe products on a PC no problem.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I like to use Photoshop to enhance my custom images in PowerPoint presentations. The generic images included in the program are great, but many of my clients wish to "brand" their materials to be unique. I also include video and sound in the construction of the presentation.
