IILLU 3150 Body Adornment & Fashion Drawing

Body Adornment & Fashion Drawing is a drawing course in which students will examine adornments, such as garments, tattoos, piercings, hairstyles, and jewelry, and how they are used as expression and self-identification. Through readings and lectures students will be presented with the cultural context to understand adornment in its many forms, knowledge that will serve them in the development of characters for illustration, sequential narratives, and animation. Students will experiment with a variety of media, drawing from radically clothed models, and developing adornments and fashions of their own.
