but they recently launched their New School of Fashion & Style 
and you will fall in love with every Fashion & Style class they have to offer.
{Well, I did anyways.}

  I'll be taking my very first fashion related art course through Skillshare 
and I'm absolutely positively THRILLED!

I've enrolled in  
This course will be taught by THE Dallas Shaw, 
 in case you don't recognize her name she is the illustrator 
behind the concept designs and advertising illustrations 
for several amazing brands such as DKNY, Chanel, Oscar de le Renta, Kate Spade, 
Mercedes Benz Fashion week and many more.
Her work is brilliant and her style is to-die-for.

This class is beginner level so anyone can take it
and Dallas will be covering the basics: 
sketching with pencil, applying color, and finalizing the illustration. 
She is so talented I can't wait to absorb her knowledge and apply it to my own art. 
We'll all be sharing our illustrations in class as well 
so I'm psyched to see what everyone comes up with!

Plus Dallas will be sharing her Top 3 favorite illustrations across all of her media platforms:
Talk about MASS exposure to tons of great people!

Not only will you be gaining a lifelong skill, you will create a beautiful fashion illustration that will brighten any room as a work of art, compliment your creative portfolio, and also help land your dream freelance gigs with major brands.

All you need to enroll in this class and receive lifetime access to it is a one-time small fee, lots of  paper, pencil, watercolor paints (no need for a large or expensive set), colored pencils, a very fine black marker or pen, and your imagination!

 So get your supplies together and head on over to Skillshare to enroll in this class,
the class begins November 26th so be sure to enroll now!
If this class isn't your thing, then be sure to check out all of the other classes
Skillshare School of Fashion & Style has to offer such as Hand Lettering, Book Cover Design, Photoshop Fundamentals, Interior Styling, or several other FANTASTIC course offerings!

{ Although I was provided with a free course to facilitate this review, the opinions and statements expressed above are completely my own.}


  1. It sounds like a lot of fun! I am not very crafty so I will have to pass, but I will pass it along to some of my friends! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I am not creative but my daughter is very much so. Just pinned this! Thank you!!

  3. This looks like a lot of fun! I love being craft and have always had a fascination with art. Unfortunately, I don't have the time or energy to do it these days! One day I hope to get back to it!

  4. I've never heard of this, I really want to look into it. I've been wanting to go back to school.

  5. This looks awesome! I will have to check out the photoshop & other classes.. Thanks for sharing this!

  6. That must be exciting and thrilling. Going on a fashion class is an advantage and that enhance your eye in fashion.

  7. I had not heard of that. I think that would be a fun organization to belog to. I like teaching people how to loom knit and make tutus.

  8. I haven't heard of this before but it sounds like a fun way to learn. I am going to check Skillshare out because I love photography, maybe there is something I can take.

  9. I have the same amount of creativity as a baby trying to paint the Sistine Chapel. I try to pretend I have skills but my impatience and lack of eye is just a recipe for disaster. ~ Chelle from Oh, Just Stop Already
