What People Are Saying About This Class:

  • "Awesome. Just the right length, a good mixture of easy to difficult things to draw, and I even found some new patterns I wouldn't have normally looked at!" - Kristin M.
  • "Really enjoyed it. Never realized what paper dolls purpose was, boy was I missing out. Drawing patterns I would have never chose made me realize how I had limited myself and how this new tool would open me up to so much. I am a 69 year old." Patricia O.
  • "Very informative and so much fun! I’m so happy with how my drawings turned out and feel much more confident about sketching wardrobe ideas." - Pam L.
  • "I loved the class. The pace was great and I finally got comfortable using my croquis, which has been sitting in my account for almost 2 years." - Shannan H.
  • "I’m already thinking about sketching more of my wardrobe so I can play around with capsules. You are a very good teacher. Knowledge and technical skill combined with approachability and playfulness. I look forward to future classes." - Pam
  • "I loved this class! This was a great way to get my feet wet and build basic skills that I can use to continue my own sketching." - Anna
