Last week fashion ruled Art First! From knitting to sewing the school was abuzz with creativity, originality and fun! The students learned to finger knit while creating a dragon and made an amazing infinity scarf while knitting with their arms only…no needles! They created their own knitting needles complete with original Sculpey clay toppers and began work on a colorful poof! It was amazing to see their creativity, concentration and complete love for this fiber art!
Our students also spent the week in Fashion Design. They planned, created, designed and learned to sew. Simple white and black tee shirts were transformed into chic tops with scissors, block printing, appliques and great imagination. The girls’ outfits were completed with a simple wrap skirt finished off with colorful trim. Headbands and hats were also on the week’s creative agenda as well as design contests creating garments from the myriad of colorful materials and trims. The designs were amazing!
They topped off their week with a stroll down the red carpet to the appreciative applause of parents and peers! It was fabulous! Who knows! The next great designer may have gotten their start this week!
