Class Experience

Students will learn about patterns in history, that directly impacted fashion styles and trends. Students will improve figure drawing and fashion drawing through using proportion and other drawing techniques and step by step guidance. 
I have a Masters in Arts Management and a Bachelor of Arts in both Fine Arts and History. I have been teaching for 10 years in schools and art galleries to children aged 3 - 17 in ESL, Drama, and Art. I am a practicing private fashion illustrator working. I work with each student individually -- no matter the class size, together we consider their creative style and celebrate their individual artistic mark.
