“When it is done properly, haute couture is at once a state of mind, an intellectual and artistic choice, a social and political expression, an aesthetic attitude, a commitment to effort and progress…a means of provoking thought, emotion, and desire.”

—Christian Lacroix

When taught properly, most people can learn how to sew.  However, only a select few will ever be able to take their sewing skills to the next level where sewing becomes an art form and as well as a true expression of haute couture design.  In this course, students will learn about the detail finishings that define a finely made leather garment, both inside and out!  This course will focus on couture techniques that separate the everyday dressmaker from the professional designers.  Students will learn tips, tricks and special techniques used only for leatherworking. 

During this course, each student will be making their very own designer, fully lined, leather garment!  Students will learn the importance of a fully functioning muslin prior to starting in their leather, as well as a large assortment of leatherworking techniques necessary for the success of such an advanced project.

As a portfolio piece, there can be nothing better than a one-of-a-kind leather garment!  As a sewer, the ability to work in leather is PRICELESS!

As all great artists know, portraiture and the human body is by far the most difficult to draw and to paint.  Movement, colour, texture and depth are so difficult to capture and master.  Simultaneously, balance and proper proportion always present their own challenges as well.  It takes many, many years of intense study to become proficient in drawing and painting the human form.

This summer we thought we would do something brand new!  Take your normal acrylic portraiture and add to it some fantasy and an element of surprise. This course is an exciting study of impressionism and  colour and texture variations in portraiture.  Students will be using acrylic paint and 3D media to explore a variety of colour theories and will be incorporating various 3D media to highlight their pieces such as mirrored pieces, beads, flowers and gems, as well as  mixing glitter and sand into their paint to create unique textures and visual effects. The name of the game here is to THINK BOLD, THINK CREATIVE AND THINK BRIGHT!   Spend two weeks with us learning new and exciting techniques that will improve your acrylic technique and boost your creativity!

This course is highly reccommended for students preparing to enter into any of the following post-secondary art programmes:  interior design, fashion design, architectural design, fashion communication, textile design, visual arts, graphic design and advertising design.
