Calling all Tween and Teen Fashionistas! Join us for a super fun 8-week course! You’ll have a blast learning to draw and design your garments on paper while exploring various media such as coloured pencils, watercolour paints and pencils, collage, paint pens, gel pens, and more. Taught by Laura-Jean Bernhardson, who has enjoyed a decades-long career in Toronto’s fashion and arts communities, this course is perfect for young artists who love to draw and style their own outfits.(You may know Laura-Jean from her knitwear company, where she was known as Laura-Jean the Knitting Queen, or her stores, Fresh Collective, that featured Canadian designs, including her own.)

While the focus is on drawing, there will also be a “Fashion Arts” component where we look at historical and contemporary fashion, and talk about inclusivity, sustainability, and inclusivity in a changing fashion industry.
