The semester has begun and campus has come back to life. I started my classes last week and have really enjoyed them so far. One of the required classes I am taking is CSR 328 Apparel Art and Design (aka Fashion Illustration). It is taught by Susan Owens who is one of the main professors in the Apparel Design & Technology major. The first day of class she wanted to get us loosened up and get out creativity going so she planned some non-conventional exercises for our class. Our first instruction was to take large brown paper and draw a dress form which was placed in the center of the room. Seems simple enough, right? Wait there is a catch. We had to put the paper on the ground and draw using chalk that was taped to the end of a stick. To keep us fresh, she encouraged us to flip our paper, switch chalk colors, and change our prospective. Though everyone in the class was given the same subject to draw, each final product had its own unique style and interpretation. It was a great first day of Illustration class and I am looking forward to the semester!
