FAS381 Fashion Illustration

[1–3, 3 cr.]

Illustration is not merely about traditional academic drawing, but about expressing the mood of a collection or the aesthetics of a designer. This studio introduces the use of experimental drawing styles, mark making and digital design skills for communicating the human figure. Students are encouraged to develop their own personal style that may be abstract, unorthodox or challenging. This studio is taught through lectures, demonstrations, practical exercises and tutorials in the production of a conceptual portfolio.

Pre-requisite: FND236A Design Studio II - Visual Dynamics, FND236B Design Studio II - Formal Tectonics, or FND236C Design Studio II - Anatomy and Space, FND251 Digital Media, FND281 Design Culture
