Experimental Fashion Illustration Classes

Posted on

I’m back in my hometown of Bristol for a few days over Easter….with a pile of admin…………..

Today I thought I’d escape the paperwork and run through some new ideas I wish to try out for future Art classes; so I invited some friends around to have a trial lesson run through.

The students started with a one minute continuous line drawing and went on to create a series of works using oil pastel and a final large scale drawing using pastel, ink and collaged paper and photographs.

Unfortunately being away from home I have limited resources so we had to run through with ink pastels and coloured paper/magazine articles (in my lessons there’s a vast selection of inks paints as well).

Teaching always leaves me feeling most inspired; advising people helps develop my own thoughts and concepts as well as seeing how my students interpret tasks using their own, unique handwriting.

A great start to the day!
