Training for all
Thank you for our Illustrator lesson, laughs, fun, and talking last night!
My flat sketches are now on fire.
I walked right into my supervisor's office this morning to talk to her about training! She's going to push for a budget for the design team to get training; they are more likely to get approved, which will help the tech-team and our patternmakers to get approved later on.

Develop technical skills and support creative process
I met Ludmila at a FIDM workshop and was immediately taken by her ability to so clearly articulate and demonstrate to the group the many different ways one can use Photoshop. Because of this, I was excited to take a private lesson! I appreciated how much thought and consideration she had put into planning for our private lesson.
Ludy walked me through everything I wanted to learn more about drawing costume design illustrations digitally and did everything she could to empower me to use Photoshop and other tools I would have never heard about if she hadn't told me about them. I appreciated how all of the big-picture learning objectives were broken down into smaller tasks and lessons so that I had the opportunity to soak everything in.
I recommend Fashion Chalkboard to anyone looking to develop their technical skills to support their creative process.
Techniques, tools, useful shortcuts and more!
Ludmila is such a great instructor; she is passionate about teaching and sharing her knowledge with others! I learned so much from her. Illustrator and Photoshop techniques, tools, useful shortcuts, and more! I use what I learned from her every day as a fashion designer.

About Your Coach,
Ludmila is a designer, educator, and creative entrepreneur, whose greatest joy is helping other creatives grow their digital design skill set, develop design confidence, and create the career of their dreams. As a college, corporate, and online instructor, she has taught thousands of students how to use Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator and grow in their creative careers.
As a designer she has pivoted her career many times, always following her bliss, from being a clueless assistant lingerie designer to working as a creative director of a lingerie company, to working as a freelancer, cad artist, colorist, textile designer, and more.
She has had the fantastic opportunity to see her designs all over the apparel world; her lingerie designs sold at stores such as, Lane Bryant, Leg Avenue, Urban Outfitters, to Fredericks of Hollywood, and to a small boutique owned by Patricia Fields (who styled the Sex in The City series).
Her surface designs were used on a variety of products ranging from prints on baby clothing, handbags, denim back pockets, to appliques on corsets.
And most recently at Adobe's textile design booth in Barcelona where her textile designs were showcased as a spotlighted designer.
Here’s what people are saying about Ludmila's work and coaching

Efficiency and confidence
I have taken part in many of Ludmila's
on-line courses and live webinar series. The Illustrator and Photoshop classes in particular have been tremendously helpful for
my Textile Design business this year.
With the many new skills and short-cuts I have learned, I have been able to work more efficiently
and land many new clients. I highly recommend
fashionchalkboard.com and Ludmila as a valuable tool for all designers looking to develop their skills and confidence.
Author/ Illustrator/ Designer
I had purchased Adobe Illustrator CS4 and some other on-line training, but when I found Ludmila's Tutorial, "Adobe Illustrator CS4 Bootcamp Video for Fashion Designers"
I bought it immediately because it was so specific to what I wanted to illustrate. Ludmila's teaching style and the way the information is presented improved my drawings drastically in a few short days.
She shows you exactly how to arrange the work-space using only the tools that you'll need for your type of illustration, and specific information about line sheets and using layers to create documents meant for various vendors or clients.
When I had a question, she was very approachable and helpful.
Great teacher, great website, great product!
Creative and concise
Ludmila was an incredible instructor; without her teaching style and expertise I would not have had the technical know-how needed in my current position as design director of an accessory company. I strongly recommend her class to anyone ready and willing to learn in a creative and concise manner.
To sum it up-
Here is everything included in your complete training bundle

Frequently Asked Questions
How does the video training inside of FSCHBD-Studio work?
Once you enroll you will receive an email with your login information.
- You can watch the videos anytime on your computer and mobile devices.
- The videos can be watched in full screen mode or as they open up when you first view them. Many students like to watch the video, pause it, minimize the screen and then do the exercise inside of the software/ app that they are learning. Then they come back to continue or rewind the videos for more help. You can easily toggle between your software/ app and the videos.
- Once you login you can download the exercise files that come with the course you are viewing from your course's home page.
How do the live one-on-one training sessions work?
Once you enroll you will receive an email from me with:
1. Instructions on how to schedule your sessions
2. Questionnaire for you to answer so I can customize your training.
- Here is what happens once a customized training plan has been created and the sessions are scheduled:
- The sessions will be held in my secure online classroom. Where you can see my screen and I can see your screen as needed. If you can watch videos online, you will be able to work with me.
- So we can communicate both ways:
- Headphones and a strong internet connection are recommended.
- Alternatively you can also chat with me, which takes longer and isn't as efficient.

I recommend using the Cloud version to receive the latest training. But as a beginner you can use the CS6 version to get started.

All training will work on both the Mac and/or PC.
