Whitehouse Institute of Design Excursion - Year 9 Fast Fashion
Monday, 19th March the Year 9 Bellarine Fast Fashion students went to the Whitehouse Institute of Design in Melbourne for a one day workshop. The students learnt how to render different types of fabric, including leather, denim, lace, cotton, beading and silk satin onto a garment. These skills were then transferred into a one point perspective interior setting, where they designed and styled a modern lounge room, using colour pencil and copic markers. The highly qualified and talented design lecturer, Todd Anthony who guided the students for the workshop, also shared industry information through his personal experiences, course pathways and how easy it is to digitally manipulate photos or illustrations on two really cool Apps such as “Snap Seed” and “Prisma”. The students thoroughly enjoyed transforming their artworks and experimenting with their work. At the end of the day, Todd announced that he was awarding one student a three day scholarship to attend any workshop of choice. The lucky student was Sienna Nelis, who had shown particular talent in what she had achieved in her illustrations throughout the day. Every student worked extremely well, learnt many new skills that will no doubt enhance their design work in their folios for years to come, and soaked up the Tertiary environment of the lovely, grand, old building of the Whitehouse. A fantastic day was had by all.
