Fashion Illustration for Teens - Starts Wed. Jan. 11, 2023

In this fun 8 week program for ages 12+, teen fashionistas will have a blast learning to draw fashion poses and design outfits and accessories on paper. We'll explore various mediums including coloured pencils, markers, watercolours and paint pens. While the core of the course is focused on drawing skills, we'll also be introduced to Canadian fashion designers and get a peek into what it's like to have a career in fashion and/or illustration.


There will be guest speakers from the industry (on zoom) who will answer questions, offer insights and give us a look at their creative world - their studio and new designs in progress. For young people interested in style, fashion and drawing, this program will open creative doors and possible career paths. Basically, I'm creating the program that 15 year old me would have loved!

Even if you think you can't draw, you'll be amazed at the work you produce with the methods in this program. No supplies necessary (for the in-person program). Just bring your imagination and enthusiasm!



We'll look at the messages the fashion industry and influencer culture is sending, and look at the designers and brands that are paving the way for the future with more body diversity, inclusiveness and environmental sustainability. We'll look at ways to repurpose textiles and the impact textile waste is having on the planet.
