I'd say finish out that class now that you got started. Vector drawing programs are not only useful for big things like billboards but they are useful for small things like all the icons and smileys on these boards. If nothing else, understanding that program could get you work making assets for smartphone apps/simple games.
I've seen some brilliant character work done in Illustrator. the projects your teacher is having you do is only to learn the program. What you do with it after class is up to you. You need to know how to work all the buttons so you can go wild with it on your own time.
Cutting edge Photoshop would be an important tool in your digital arsenal, and should make sense to a GIMP user.
If you are interested in 3D then the basics would start with Maya or 3DS Max. It's rare to see a job ad talking about knowledge of any open source programs.

Maybe the teacher let you design road signs and company logos ,in order to develop in the learning process you after the habit of making something details.
you can learn maya or 3dmax if you are interested in 3D .At the same time you can also learn photoshop .they must be able to give you a lot of help in the future .
Happy life can't apply colours to a drawing of the render farm !
