Developing Skills

For Higher Education students to continue developing skills, Adobe offers free “Daily Creative Challenges”. These are guided projects where participants receive creative prompts and connect with pros, mentors, and other students for feedback and support.

Also, for inspiration and over-the-shoulder learning, watch pros share their creative process on Adobe Live.
