Project Description

Description: Create a drawing of a fashion figure wearing a wedding dress using simple shapes, varied lines, basic proportion, and personal detail. 


  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Ruler


  1. Draw your fashion figure following our proportion guidelines. Exaggerate your figure in a way that will make your wedding dress really pop!
  2. Draw your wedding dress silhouette onto your fashion figure. Pay close attention to the length of the dress and the basic shapes that make up the dress.
  3. Add your fashion face. Use our proportion guidelines, but have fun with the details. 
  4. Add detail to the fabric including texture, drapery, sparkle, and shine. Be as detailed or as loose as you like with the fabric - it's your drawing, make it fun. 
  5. Accessorize! Add flowers, shoes, bags, a veil, and/or jewelry.
  6. Darken the important lines and erase any extra, unnecessary lines.
  7. Sign your artwork - you did it!
  8. Share, share, share! Post your work-in-progress and your finished pieces to our class gallery, so we can toast your success!
  9. Frame your art for your home, gift to family or friends, or print onto thank you cards (or other printed items).
  10. Celebrate! You made an amazing artwork and we are so proud of you! Post your work to your social media outlets and let the praise pour in! Tag us too - social media links in profile. 

Extra Credit: Post a picture of you drawing your wedding dress while wearing a wedding dress for extra points and, of course, extra fun.
