InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop courses by Art City!

The graphic design courses from Art and the City offer an in-depth introduction to the three most important Adobe programs: Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.

I have just completed the Illustrator Basis course with Art and the City and found it excellent. Small group of students, great support from the tutor and very well organised and welcoming. Thank you!
Experience has shown us that there are many advantages to following graphic design courses in a digital classroom.
  • You can watch the screen of your teacher alongside the fellow students.
  • Is there a misunderstanding or do you have a design question? Ask right away and the teacher can look at your screen through Zoom.
  • Did you miss something completely? You receive a recording of the lesson. This way you can check everything at your own leisure.
  • Of course you will also be provided with an extensive syllabus with exercise material and inspiring assignments.
  • Our top priority is to satisfy all our students!

Our graphic design courses can also be followed privately. Please email to to discuss your level and receive a quotation.
