Fashion Illustration

Visual Arts students explore the emotional and expressive qualities in art to access the imagination and broaden creativity. Emphasis is placed upon acquiring strong technical skills, expressing meaning through images and developing unique creative vision.

The Fashion Illustration course will introduce basic fashion design concepts from sketching the fashion body to creating “mood boards” and fashion flats for an imagined collection of clothing based on a theme. Fashion sketching is one of the first skills in fashion design. This class provides instruction in rendering fashion figures and garments through a variety of media and techniques. Students learn how to draw a basic figure, adding detail and design. Emphasis is on building ideas, themes and brainstorming to understand the silhouette of fashion design. This course also introduces basic clothing terminology and a common theme is explored in the creation of each individual student’s final collection.
