Laura Volpintesta, Fashion Illustration Tribe

I want to see you come out of your shell! All of those ideas in your head....I'm here to give you the tools, one by one, to bring them out onto paper, in an encouraging environment that meets you one your schedule. I want you to feel safe to create as you grow into your confidence in a playful, exploring, deep way to know what fashion students are learning in my classes for 20 years now at the best fashion schools, but without the debt and pressure. This is where you can get empowered in a place where you are in the driver's seat, and what you feel, think, know and are curious about matters as you develop your unique style and voice to share with the world....or even just for yourself. I want you to never be afraid of a blank piece of paper again....... xoxo Laura

You love fashion, you want to create beautiful images and art, and (believe that you ) "CAN'T DRAW".
My dear love, you haven't had a chance!
You haven't had the support,
You haven't had any guidance or personal space to really unfold this way.

It isn't fair!

You recognize beauty, you feel it, it lives and breathes inside you and it feels like an accident that you can't access it to make your own creations.

But hon, you can.  You need to start where you're at.
You're in good hands.
I was someone who doodled shapes her whole life and couldn't "draw" things that I wanted to, like realistic things or anything.


You'll get a new drawing exercise every day in your email for two weeks.
Try each one.
I guarantee you will learn to see and draw in new ways and find yourself at a whole other level drawing figures.

Learn more:

So, maybe you cringe when you look at your own drawings....

And hopefully you don’t.  But don’t worry

Forget about learning to draw figures.... you may not even know how to DRAW at ALL, and that's fine!!!
The human body can be overwhelming/ daunting to draw because there are so many moving parts,

But you never GOT A CHANCE to crush through the wall to getting your voice outside of your head and onto paper.

You've been feeling hopelessly stuck about this, but

There's hope:

1) the human form is one of the single most inspiring and beautiful expressive things you can possibly draw

2) the tremendous amount of inspiration fuels your desire to progress and get real results

3) once you have gotten a handle on the human form, you'll be able to draw ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING with more ease and accuracy!

4) through learning drawing, you are really learning all drawingd

5)you'll learn  how artists and designers see their art supplies and process, which is probably different than you've been seeing it

6) you'll change the way you see yourself

7) you'll change your beliefs about how art is made

8) you'll get new insights and exercises EVERY SINGLE DAY for the week

And fashion drawing is about feeling, style and skill, it is NOT about distorting the body to have extra-long-everything.

It's about line, proportion, dynamics, composition, form, shadow, texture, light, feeling, movement, ideas, structure, angles, curves.........
Are those words even frightening?
I'm saying that because I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN!

So join us for bite sized exercises---  two weeks of emails to become EXPERIENCED
To make your discoveries
And shine.

I want to help you! I adore this!
I've been teaching for 20 years and I KNOW you have this in you.


Q: what's the format?

Sign up in the Ruzuku platform. Each day you'll get an email notice so you can link right in to the new daily video exercise, beginning on September 20 (the day after my BIRTHDAY!)

Q:  Do I need any supplies?

A simple pencil and paper can take you through the course, but i will be using and recommending other tools you can add to your kit, as well (and links to find them) . Even if you don't have them yet or never get them, you'll get the IDEA by seeing them in action and you can still use your pencil to do every exercise.

Q: What's the refund policy?

I don't offer refunds, but nobody has ever asked me for one. You will be getting killer content from day one and far outweigh this investment.  You'll be learning top level art and design techniques for a lifetime of use, as well as taking bold strides that will deeply change the way you draw and approach art.

Are you new to fashion drawing?

New to drawing altogether?

New to figure drawing or fashion drawing??

IT'S OKAY!!!! I've taught

beginner to advanced portfolio fashion students for 20 years at Parsons in NYC>

This is  a no-judgment, all joy zone..... I won't water-down the art tools and supplies that I use to create fashion drawings that jump off the page.

I won't hold back in sharing my key techniques and tools with you.

We'll use some traditional art supplies and I"ll show you an art app too, for fun and portablility.

I can't help myself but to urge you to share and develop and practice and try and ask, and to help each other along, all of us....

YOU are going to learn new tools, resources

YOU are going to experiment. NOW. You are going to find a new voice inside of you , getting stronger.


We'll get the figure drawing down as top-priority, but as in all of my classes, we will explore creative design too!!!!

 I mean, why not?
