Project Description

Create a Custom Painted T-shirt

Choose a close friend, your kids or create a painted T-shirt for yourself.

Think about your “client”. What does she/he like? How can you personalize the T-shirt? What kind of colors does he/she enjoys wearing?

There are two options for the project class:

  • Create from the scratch your model drawing. If you would like to make your own drawing, explore. Make mood boards, add all your ideas in one place and start sketching. Make sure you choose an image suitable with your drawing experience, as the scope is to enjoy the process. :)
  • Or, you can make things simple by downloading the penguin drawings that I used and start from there. You can add different patterns, colours and make your penguin T-shirt customized and unique.

Deliverables for your class project:

  • A few words about your theme: who are you offering the T-shirt too?;
  • Your sketches, mood board or other inspirational images;
  • Photographs of your process;
  • Photographs of the painted T-shirt;
