CAD Fashion Art

CAD Fashion Art

Our art lessons using Computer Assisted Design (CAD) tools were created with the fashion designer, fashion merchandiser and product developer/technical designer in mind. You will learn how to use Adobe Illustrator® for Flats and Adobe Photoshop® for Surface Design. Our Adobe InDesign® lessons will enable you to create line sheets and your portfolio.
Note: You'll learn the most from these lessons by doing exactly what the teachers are doing, using your own software and related materials

Our hand-drawing art lessons will help you to understand the proportions of the human body and familiarize you with the sorts of styles and body types other designers, clients, customers and retail buyers expect to see. Our CAD lessons utilize Adobe Illustrator®, Photoshop® or InDesign®. You can subscribe to these apps from Adobe’s cloud-based service, Creative Cloud. Click here to view their pricing and plans.
