Winter and Spring 2021 continuing education classes are being taught remotely. Studio classes have live remote meetings. Basic requirements to take a class are an internet connection, computer, and an internet linked camera (like a cell phone). Most classes will be hosted through Zoom or MassArt Moonami. For specific course requirements, contact the CE office at ce@massart.edu or your instructor.

Push your creativity while building on time-tested principles of design and craft. Fashion courses at MassArt offer an opportunity for students to learn the fundamentals of fashion design in one of the oldest and most respected fashion programs in the country.

This course teaches students how to communicate original ideas using the geometric principles of design, and helps them to master block pattern structure. Basic garment construction, fundamental draping, and development of couture are covered. These skills are used to translate creative designs into three-dimensional form in both fabric and non-textiles.
