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

  Are you eager to change the way you look at things, try new tools and approaches, 

explore, discover, and express yourself in art  and fashion???

 Did you always think you “couldn’t draw” but knew that you wanted to?

 Would that bring you an amazing sense of confidence and satisfaction? 

 Is it something you always dreamed of?

 Do you look at art or other creators and artists and feel a deep desire and knowing 

 that you could bring incredible images to life if you had guidance and support?

That’s why I’ve created this and all of my courses and programs.

I only recently stumbled upon fashion illustration apps myself, 

so I can just imagine what you are feeling when you think about how to get started:  OVERWHELMED!

We love the expression of fashion illustration, 

but if we create a sketch and we don't like the face, then ....we don't like the whole sketch!  That's because faces are the "windows to the soul" and that's why were going to focus on faces, heads, hair and features in this course, exclusively!

This course is for beginners to advanced lovers of fashion and design.

Let's find and bring out your voice and your skills in art and fashion.


The more you work with faces, the more you’ll want to work  with faces. 

It just gets deeper and more expressive all the time!

When you focus on faces in this course--

You'll find you get better and better and more comfortable, 

as the concepts settle into your mind and body, and the approach settles into your heart.

in these apps, you’ll explore markers, pencils, watercolors, textured and colored papers, chalks and crayons, colored pencils, acrylics, brush pens, paintbrushes, fineline pens, textures and more. ......


Let's focus on how to build:

  • nose

  • eyes

  • ears

  • mouth

  • hair

  • shading

  • line

  • lashes

  • highlights

  • textures

  • proportions
