University of the Arts London -Central Saint Martins (UAL-CSM) Drawing through Fashion workshop March 2019

GCSE students from St Paul’s Way Trust, Raines and Central Foundation Girls’ School attended a Drawing Through Fashion workshop delivered by University of the Arts London Ambassadors. Students were engaged in a series of drawing exercises, where they explored drawing models/volunteers dressed with fashion props/items/fabrics. The drawing exercise focused of drawing styles and built up confidence to enable students to work collaboratively on two large scale mismatched figures. Final outcomes used a combination of linear drawing and collage to realise their collaborative pieces.

Students explored, developed and increased:

  • confidence and creative decision-making
  • experimental practices and process
  • spontaneous and new ways of working – collaborative practices
