Hello, do we receive credits for this course?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Since this is a non-credit course, students will not receive credits. You would have to take one of our longer credit-bearing courses in fashion drawing to earn credits. Hope this helps.

Question from Marit N.
Hi! I am wondering if there are any other brands or alternatives to Prismacolor that we can use that aren't quite so expensive? Thanks!
Answer from SARAH G. Verified Student
you can buy 5 colors or so, that you think you will use the most then you can add more
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Marit! If you go to the art supplies store, you will see other brands. You can just go to the store and find the brand that you can afford. There are other brands available but not sure if there are alternatives. Students should bring their own but the instructor probably has markers as well. If you want to, you can buy a few colors (basic/primary colors) and after the 1st class and you want to purchase more, you can ask the instructor for other brands. Prisma comes in a box and that might be expensive. You may purchase individual markers and then look at the store brands. Hope this helps!

Hi, I'm a complete beginner who has zero experience drawing with markers. Is the class fast paced for absolute beginners like myself?

Beginner's Fashion Drawing Studio
Reviewed by Katie H. on 11/18/2019
I was a bit nervous to take this class because I'm very much a beginner at drawing in general, let alone fashion drawing. But it was a very laid-back environment, and Professor Broadway was so encouraging of everyone, no matter our skill levels. I had so much fun and was sad when the last class ended! I also learned a ton from both the professor and other students in the class, some of whose work was very inspiring. I definitely plan to keep up with this new hobby, and might take the class again next year. Would definitely recommend it!
