Photoshop II: Textiles & Product Development (Mac)


Attended: Photoshop II: Textiles & Product Development (Mac)

Be prepared for a jam packed fast paced crash course in Photoshop. This class is definitely for someone who has basis understanding of the program and don’t have a lot of time. I wish it was in three or four part for one day of review but, like I said it’s fast so be prepared to learn a lot.

Live Fashion Drawing and Moodboard Creation

If you follow the Fashion Illustrator Steven Broadway then you know that he offers these live model practice sessions for illustrators to strengthen their skills. All skill levels are accommodated as he offers drawing introductions for newbies and guides veteran artist to strengthen their skill. Broadway usually has 2 - 3 live models with an array of fashion clothing to help ignite your illustrating imagination. 6 hours does sound like a long time but you'd be surprise how the time moves along as you continue to draw. Plus there is a regular set of attendees so the class is energized and determined to draw for the entire duration. There is a break where all artist display work. This is a great way to get drawing and technique ideas. I have not attended a session that actually goes over the mood boards. I have the supplies just incase. But I am content with just drawing. If you have taken Professor Broadway's Fashion and Accessory Illustration courses this live model practice is what you need for your next step development.

Walter was a dynamic and entertaining instructor. There is a ton of information given. One must be willing to also put in time after class with instructional videos provided by Walter to really get proficient.

Attended: How to Sell on Amazon

This was a very good informational course. It covered a lot of areas and had a good pace. It would have been great to get some handouts due to the amount of information but the instructor said she would follow up with email. I recommend this class!

Ethical Fashion I

Attended: Ethical Fashion I

I loved this course and got so much out of it! Kate is a wonderful presenter with so much experience in the ethical fashion space and was able to provide us with a thorough and holistic introduction to ethical fashion. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning more about ethical fashion. In my opinion it was fantastic value for money.

How to Launch an Online Business

Cornelia F.

Attended: How to Launch an Online Business

The instructor was very nice and was able to give great advice because she has an online store that's up and running. However, I didn't think it was enough value information for 3hrs each class. I feel it could've been taught in shorter time frame.
