Childhood Dreaming Becomes a Reality

My substitute professor taught us how to draw a basic blouse and skirt. I’ve always liked drawing but I never know how to fit it on a body and make it look real.

My experience with FIT so far is amazing. I love getting out of bed every Saturday and knowing I’m going to a class for my dream school. Prof. Cutting is a wonderful teacher and he helps everyone as much as he can.

I also entered a contest for pockets and purses. I designed a bathing suit and a backpack with little pockets in it, to keep wax for your surfboard or sunscreen sticks. It is so fascinating seeing your sketch on tracing paper and transferring it to marker paper, watching it come alive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This contest was introduced March 17th. Three students from the  who run the program took the class down to the museum to see how pockets and purses have evolved through the years.

FIT for the Talented

We are currently learning how to make outfits using a denim, stripe pattern and a floral. As the designer, you have to be very specific and show where the body is and where the folds of the garnmet are.

The last 20 minutes of class, we went to the gallery to see the student’s mood board’s and outfits they made. The students are very talented, they make their croquis look alive.

Have you ever wondered how to make your drawings look more realistic? Shading is KEY!

Here is a look at the talented work of people who were accepted into FIT:
