Live Fashion Drawing and Moodboard Creation

Attended: Live Fashion Drawing and Moodboard Creation


This session is what the fashion illustrators at any level needs to grow in their drawing practice. 6 hours of live model drawing with amazing fashion outfits helps to develop skills and get much needed practice. Time does move along quickly when you are really engaged in drawing. These sessions welcome all levels. If you've never drawn before you are definitely welcome to attend. And you learn best by doing and looking at works from experienced artist. The instructor, Steven Broadway, is an amazing artist and creates a tranquil yet energized drawing environment. He offers demos for beginners and will walk around providing comments and direction. I look forward to the next session.

Product Development with PLM

Attended: Product Development with PLM


I thought this class was great, as I knew nothing about PLM. You begin to see the simple patterns in the technology and how user friendly it is. I think our teacher was the absolute best part, he was incredibly knowledgeable about the PLM system and the fashion industry in general. He has a great deal of experience teaching, so it was very easy to follow along on the computer as well as with the hand outs for each class. He also goes above and beyond to answer questions and help students with their projects. If you need to learn PLM for fashion or product development (or a similar version of the system) I highly recommend this class!

This was an excellent class. The professor and his assistant were knowledgeable and conveyed information clearly. The space was uncrowded and the equipment was well-maintained. I highly recommend this class for anyone who would like to try or already has an interest in woodworking.

Great instructor, made the class very clear and easy to understand. The material is a little boring but also very important to know in the industry, and he makes it easy to digest and follow along.
