VPAS 691 Visual Arts for the Classroom: Fashion Design Illustration

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Fashion design is an expressive art that originated to broadly advertise current fashion
trends. This course introduces 7-12 educators to professional figure- and clothing-illustration
techniques. Educators will: 1) create fashion figures with attention to proportion and
detailing, according to fashion industry standards; 2) illustrate garments, fabrics, and
technical flats; 3) develop a personal sketching style using a variety of artistic media,
including colored pencils, watercolor, markers and technical pens; and 4) explore the fashion
history and culture of select ‘eras.’ The final project is the creation of a fashion collection,
complete with fashion figures, garment, color story, and target market.

Open to graduate students from the Division of Continuing Studies.
This course is not repeatable for credit.
