Saturdays at Ashcan Studio 11-3 and 4-8
The Fashion Illustration class begins with instruction on how to draw the standard fashion figure, which will be used as a base for a series fashion sketches and illustrations. As students develop their drawing skills, they investigate historical and contemporary fashion and use it as a resource for their own fashion designs. Finally, using the fashion figure, students illustrate their own line of garments in detail, using pen, ink, marker, and wash techniques.
Tuesdays at Ashcan Studio 4-8
In the Garment Construction courses students learn the professional techniques used in the construction of garments. Pattern making, sewing, cutting, construction, and finishing techniques are used to create garments in cotton or cotton-type fabrics. Areas of concentration are the garments fit, balance, style, creativity and proportion.
