About This Class

In this class we are going to draw directly from a fashion runway show image and learn techniques for rendering fabric using Copic markers and Prisma Color pencils. We will explore tools, resources, and methods that will help us translate the fashion look to the page while developing our own personal drawing style.

In our class project we will select one designer look from a runway show, draw and render it.

This class is geared toward intermediate and beginner drawing students, and anyone with a love for fashion and illustration. Prior knowledge and experience is not required.

Let’s have some fun drawing fashion!
