Couture Fashion Illustration Workshops

Registration will open THURSDAY, MAY 7th on our Event Calendar.


We'll be walking you step-by-step through the techniques of fashion illustration using watercolor, ink and charcoal.  3 workshops are available--take 1 or all 3.  Each class begins with the foundation of creating a fluid, in-motion fashion figure.  Don't worry if you're a beginner!  These classes are built for those interested in getting their feet wet in illustration and fashion is our way to introduce that to you!  We're taking years of class time and delivering the most succinct "how-to" information series so you'll be successful and hopefully empowered to continue further for your own pleasure.  Each class will view different techniques and styles of master designers and illustrators, always starting with the basis of the fashion figure sketch.  

Limit of 10 per class.  Registration will run through our EVENT CALENDAR.  A wait list will open once the class maximum is reached.  Please add your name to the wait list and you will be contacted if space becomes available.
