What's the training about?
TOTAL IMMERSION INTO PROFESSION
The course of workshops consists of 6 three-hour classes, which combine theoretical and practical parts. Participants of the Fashion Art Camp learn about the main personalities and masters of fashion-illustration, trends in fashion business, the loudest collaborations and of course how and how much a fashion illustrator can earn.
As for the practical part, you will learn how to stylize a figure, clothes, draw a fashion portrait, editorial - and event-illustration. You will also find out what an advertising illustration is, how to communicate with a customer and how to make a product he is sure to buy.
The most essential part - practical - consists of working with a live model on a workshop dedicated to advertising illustration. You will get unique drawing experience that is not to be obtained at any other master class in Russia. A professional model in high fashion looks will pose for you - this is the way the great Anthonio Lopez and Rene Gruau drew in the past, and the way Alena Lavdovskaya, David Downton and just a few other illustrators are working today. This is a complete immersion in the profession!
THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN!
"We are gathering a small group - up to 12 people.
Therefore, the approach will be individual, depending on the level of the student. Some of you will come for pleasure and fun, some - to figure out whether fashion illustration is their vocation, and some - to get a magic kick to break your limits, to draw faster, to become skilled and confident. Everyone will find in this course what they are looking for and for this week of full immersion I will try to mould a little artist out of you."- Alena Lavdovskaya
During each workshop, Alena supervises every student, and gives priceless tips on the portfolio composition, as well as recommendations on how to develop your individual style and become a commercially-demanded illustrator.
