Students will also create their own design inspiration boards as they learn to draw with confidence. This class will cover proportions of the fashion figure, drawing head, hands, and feet as well as side and back poses. We will refine those design ideas and learn artistic details like shading, positioning, colouring, and blending. This class will also cover rendering different fabrics and cuts. Lastly, we will select the students’ best designs to be fully illustrated and coloured as artwork or portfolio pieces. This course is perfect for anyone who enjoys fashion and wants to develop his or her skills as a fashion artist.
*No prior drawing or art experience required.
