In the world of fashion, most garments only receive praise once they are showcased on runways or featured in magazines. Unfortunately, this standard often overlooks the most beautiful part of the production process: the fashion illustration.
I started a website called PaperFashion four years ago to celebrate this artform through paintings of my own, and Im excited to finally be able to teach some techniques and tricks to you through Skillshare!
Through video tutorials, curated resources, and hands on exercises, I will take you through the process of creating stunning fashion illustrations in a thoughtfully artistic way.
In this class we will go over:
You'll share your process and final sketches with your classmates and receive feedback from your peers. I will not directly be leaving feedback on your work- but please post your work on instagram with the tag #paperfashionclass and I'll check it occassionaly :).
Whether you're a budding beginner or just looking to improve your skills, this class will provide you with easy to follow steps and tools to bring your art to life!
Reviews from past students:
“Loved the class..I learned such great tips and tricks .....this class has motivated me to keep drawing ! :)”
“I went into “An Intro To Fashion Illustration w/ PaperFashion” without any prior experience. By the time I left, I was able to illustrate with confidence and had all the tools I needed to keep practicing at home. We spent a lot of time illustrating, and got to watch Katie Rodgers demonstrate her techniques, which was invaluable. I had a blast! It was definitely a great way to spend the afternoon! Can't wait for more classes!”
“An eye opener into the wonderful world of fashion illustrating. Talent does shine thru no matter how you present it. The class was insightful and Katie was very patient in doling out pointers to her passion. Would recommend anyone with an inkling of curiosity to take the class. ”
