Life drawing has given me a better awareness and understanding of the human form which has really helped my fashion design work as I am now able to design more wearable garments. It is a great way to meet like-minded students and take a break from studies, while helping my studies. It is also quite therapeutic and is a nice reprieve from stressful times at uni
