7 weeks long. Meets once a week for 3 hours.
In this first of 2 levels, students will learn how to create a garment flat or sketch in Adobe Illustrator CC. A flat is a basic digital sketch that displays a garment as if it were laid “flat”. It’s used to communicate your design idea technically – whether that’s to a pattern-maker, technical designer, merchandiser, or factory. Garment flats are also required for tech packs (technical packages) or fashion design portfolio. At the end of the course, the student will have created a foundation library of flats or sketches that can be manipulated into other designs and future work.
Certification of completion included after completing level 2.
