Improve Your Fashion Drawing
This course will suite beginners or experienced designers wanting to develop a personalised style of drawing. A range of design techniques and materials are shown with demonstrations. You will be encouraged to experiment and choose your preferred media, developing your own style throughout.
Exercises around fashion drawing will help boost confidence and provide stronger skills for portfolio presentation. Personal projects may also be worked on throughout the week.
Education visits will provide ideas together with information on fabrics, colours and shapes. Students are encouraged to take notes and use this information to develop their work.
A fashion life-drawing day will be arranged, drawing from a variety of poses to create individual and personal reference material.
Through observation, experimentation, workshop and independent practice, combined with personal tuition, the course aims to improve confidence and enable participants to express their creativity in a more individual way.
Please bring examples of your work to the first session and /or illustrators designers that influence you.
Please note: This course is for students aged 18 and older
