Super Sunday workshops!




Fashion Illustration Bootcamp  is an intensive day of drawing and learning which will effectively be like a mini Fashion Illustration course.  Starting with the basics of fashion figure proportion, we will move through the theory of pose structure and how to get the pose down on paper with a fashion feel and look.  Media technique will be covered using Copic markers and coloured pencils, with a focus on creating depth and movement.  Brilliant results will be achieved!

How to book a spot in The Drawing Salon classes:

Your enrolment is confirmed by payment (places cannot be held). Payment may be made online or by bank transfer (contact for details).

If for some reason you need to cancel your enrolment, if more than ten day’s notice is given you will be issued with a credit note valid for 12 months to use on other classes, which may also be transferred to someone else. If ten days or less is given, then your place may be transferred to someone else but not credited. If payment is not finalized by the due date then your spot may be given to someone on the waiting list, in which case you will receive a credit note for your deposit.

The Drawing Salon reserves the right to cancel any scheduled class, which may be for the reasons that a) the class does not reach the minimum number of students to proceed, or b) the class teacher falls ill. In this case a full refund of fees paid to this point will be refunded.
