Fashion & Character Illustration classes

Posted on

Saturday is the last ‘Fashion & Character Illustration’ Class (8-11 year olds) at Rosetta Arts for this year – it has been an incredible ten weeks and the work created by the children so diverse.

I teach my students a process and see how they develop the concept into their own piece; this ten week project had to relate to a Fashion Drawing or a new character/super hero.

The images below were an experiment where the students painted a square piece of cotton with white gesso and then drew their characters onto the fabric using oil pastel and acrylic paints….since these photos have been taken I’ve taught them to sew and they’ve been using appliqué onto their Artworks.

We have now photographed all of their artworks from the ten week course and in the final lesson will heat transfer (using heat press) their best works onto tote bags – teaching them possible ideas for development and Surface decoration.
