About This Class

This class was created to help anyone who wants to learn how to draw fashion using fashion croquis. There are many courses on understanding how to create fashion illustrations from a blank canvas to the finished body figure, however my class is geared toward the novice who want to create fashion without the knowiedge of the typical 9 heads figure. Fashion croquis are a simple and easy way to get fashion ideas onto paper without a ton of practice or indepth study..

Understanding how to draw fashion using croqui- templates will benefit each learner, by giving them the following:

-Fast and quick way to illustrate fashion ideas in a proportioned form.

-Learn some beginning foundations for drawing and coloring fashion illustrations.

-Croquis help you translate your fashion ideas to a client, for a presentation, or just your creative passions  in a professional way.

Fashion croquis are seen as useful tool in the Fashion industry everywhere.

My goal is help every student with or without a ton of fashion knowledge  to create there fashion ideas and bring them to life!

Designer Kel,

A lover of fashion and all things beautiful!!

I am a fashion illustrator/calligraphist who simply gets a ton of pure joy from taking a plain canvas and bringing it to life!!!  I've been drawing since I was young and have loved to draw for hours in my sketchbooks using any kind of pen, especially if it "sparkles".

In fact, I didn't know being an artist/designer was or could be a reality. Perhaps, many of you like myself didn't know what you good at or even truly loved to do. Growing up changes some things and new ideas pop into the head,  so I attending college for Fashion Marketing. However, this road was what I thought I wanted to do, but it seems you return to that same hobby over and over again, so I thought it's time to take this road to being an artist!!

Learning more about illustrations (particularly Fashion Illustration) and pursuing my passion has led me on some real shaky roads of uncertainty, but has also led me to some deeper bliss, I've been searching for.

Illustrations has been one of my best journey's so far and I anticipate on what's ahead!  I hope to travel the world and share my art as I go and become an expert on Fashion Illustration. My favorite artist in 2017 is Megan Hess, my go to icon for all things lovely and fashionable!! She has been a huge inspiration in my journey so far and who showed what a simple pen could do.

I once thought that getting a gift of a pen or pencil was meant as a failure,......I couldn't get anything else but a pen??, but now that simple little pen or pencil has changed the minds of people world over and the arts are the major employment industries today. 

One little pen and a sheet a paper can change the way we see the world and has definitely changed mine.

Now, I'm here on skillshare, where so many others with the gift of the pen are also changing the world, it's an exciting adventure and who knows what awaits:)

Hope you will enjoy what I'm bringing to teach on skillshare, see you in class!
