About This Class

Sit down with illustrator Kristy Lankford for an approachable bridal themed fashion drawing class for beginners! Say "I do!" to a 45-minute class that teaches students about proportion of the female fashion figure and the fashion face, wedding dress silhouettes, and accessories. All of the topics are covered with a focus on bridal fashion. This course requires only a few drawing materials and no previous drawing experience. It's a fun way to learn about fashion drawing and wedding dresses at the same time!


Kristy Lankford is an artist, illustrator, and teacher who creates custom wedding event paintings and wedding dress fashion drawings for clients nationwide. She has taught introduction to fashion drawing for many years and is bringing her course to Skillshare for the first time. Her work can be found on

Imagine creating a fashion drawing of your sister's wedding dress to give as a gift to commemorate her special day. Think about making a sketch of your own dream gown to show the designer who will make your custom wedding dress. What about using a wedding dress fashion drawing to print onto bags or t-shirts for your best friend's upcoming bachelorette party. These are a few of the things you can create using the skills you will learn in this class. 

So grab that wedding dress from the closet, fill your champagne flute, and settle in for an accessible, introductory fashion drawing class with a delightful wedding dress focus.

Great class! Anyone interested in drawing wedding fashion will enjoy this. I found a lot of the tips about proportion, accessories and dealing with hands and feet to be very helpful.

Anyone interested in wedding drawing will learn some fun basics from this class. I particularly liked learning about the dress shapes and learning to draw the feet and shoes. Very simple with those basic shapes!

Hi! I'm an artist, illustrator, and art teacher living and working in the Washington, D.C area. I love to sketch in my sketchbook and make art for weddings, children's books, homes, holidays, and more! I started my wedding painting business when a friend of a friend asked me to live paint a wedding! It was all wedding bells and chocolate cake after that. Now my custom wedding artworks are available through my Etsy Shop.

In addition to private commissions and wedding paintings, I have p...
