DRAWING CLOTHING and DRAPERY – a one night wonder class

If you’ve ever tried drawing or painting people, but weren’t sure how to make the clothing look real, this class will help.  You’ll learn about:

  • the seven different types of folds, and how to draw them
  • tension points, tension lines and support points
  • how to make clothing look real and three-dimensional
  • how to suggest textures such as silk, denim and leather in your drawings or paintings

Whether you do realistic drawings and paintings, draw comics and graphic novels, or just want to learn for the fun of it, this Seattle clothing drawing class will help. You’ll leave the class with a better understanding of where folds come from, how they change as the figure moves in space, and how to draw them. “Absolute beginners” welcome. Nothing to bring or buy; all materials are provided.

Tuition: $55 + $10 registration fee ($5 for students/seniors)

 Student comments

  • Thanks again for the class. It answered my questions and made a lot more sense of things for me. – Judith R. , Seattle
  • I’ve always been fairly comfortable drawing people, but I never knew what to do when it was time to draw the clothes on them. The class made a lot of sense and was just what I was looking for.  – Michelle P., Seattle
  • I’m encouraged! My drawings are starting to look more real… – Perry M., Bellevue
  • I’ve always loved sketching people… I’m no Rembrandt but I have fun trying. But drawing clothes on them would ruin the drawings. I was hoping to learn how to draw them realistically, and that’s exactly what happened. – M.G., Seattle
  • Another good class Nils. Thanks! Learning about the different types of folds was extremely helpful. – H.I., Redmond
  • I learned just what I was hoping to. I would highly recommend the instructor’s classes. – Gene J, Bothell
