VINTAGE FASHION ILLUSTRATION
Drop in drawing class hosted by Paper Dress Drawing Salon
We will be drawing from a live model, starting with the basics of fashion illustration including proportion, weight and balance.
The class will focus on the fashions within a specific decade, looking at the characteristics of the styles, such as silhouette, waistline, hemline etc
We will explore a range of short and longer poses through a variety of observation techniques and rendition exercises designed to suit the era of the fashions covered in the class.
This class we will be working with J'ADORE LA VIE to bring you a Showgirl Special - so we will be looking particularly at illustrating textures such as feathers and sequins.
£12 in advance / £15 on the door
All levels welcome - no previous experience necessary
