Fashion Teacher

Fashion Teacher Laura Volpintesta-  for live workshops and trainings!

20 years in the classroom at Parsons School of Design has prepped me well with working in group settings.

I’m enthusiastic about working with beginners teaching model drawing, pencil and watercolor techniques.  Or, taking higher level students deeper into developing their concepts.

Guess who created the very first online fashion studio design course for Parsons in 2008 that still runs today?

My fashion book is available in 5 languages around the world!

Do you want to enrich your high school, college or museum arts program with a fashion illustration course?

Maybe would you like to get feedback and guidance on portfolio development?

If you are hosting a retreat and would simply like a really upbeat, musical, relaxing and creative model drawing or watercolor class for your clients to unwind and explore their creative side- call ME.

I have extensive experience as a fashion teacher, and love connecting with students. My joy is to really empower them to express their unique style while getting really solid, professional tools.

My first 5 years at Parsons teaching draping, pattern making and sewing in 6-hour studios.

Whether sketching or building fashion, I believe in jumping in with both feet, having a sense of humor, and going the extra mile in creativity or technicality.

Taking a little risk to make a new discoveries create experiences you’ll always keep with you!

Call me to discuss how we can bring a rich, vibrant educational experience to your institution! and we can set up a Skype appointment to discuss your needs!
