Beginner's Fashion Drawing Studio

Attended: Beginner's Fashion Drawing Studio


This is my 2nd time taking this workshop with Steven Broadway and the experience was totally different from the first. I learned more techniques and saw growth in my drawings. This course primarily focuses on creative fashion designs on standard garment outlines on croquis. As a beginner's course the instructor will guide you with a standard croqui and will show you how to draw fabric texture. The creativity...is all YOU! This allows for everyone showcasing unique works of art. The course my seem overwhelming at the beginning as Steven pours out garment outline after garment outline. But he will give you plenty of time to draw and develop ideas. Steven incorporates music in the creative process to support the fashion feel. You learn from both Steven and your fellow classmates.

Drawing for Accessories Design

This is a great class to learn how to draw and design fashion accessory. The instructor Steven Broadway provides drawing exercises and tips for people of any level (Beginners - Advance) to jump right in and begin drawing. His guidance will help you create amazing designs you probably never imagined you can do. The course can be offered in 3 or 4 hour segments but the time goes by fast. Steven provides music to help support a creative fashionable atmosphere. This course compliments Steven's Fashion Beginners Studio perfectly. Note: be prepared by bringing a couple of fashion magazines that will be used for accessory reference.

Totally worth it. A relaxing but informative class no matter your experience. Really inspired me to look at accessories in a new way and definitely improved my drawing techniques.

Good class, a little disorganized at times as not everyone in the class was a beginner, so introductions / explaination were a little short sometimes. Overall awesome chair and fun experience.

It was good but could be frustrating for true beginners as the class included people with different levels. I would recommend that as a class we did one project together and individually pursued whatever we wanted. Overall did get basics.
