Fashion Illustration Fundamentals suits a broad range of people from beginners to those with some drawing experience.  It’s a comprehensive 12-week course which will take someone from the very foundations of fashion illustration through to an understanding of the various media most useful in this discipline, as well as exploring more advanced media and concepts such as compositional planning, training your selective eye, alternative views, and menswear.
