Fashion Design students will learn everything about designing and creating clothes. During the first months of the program, students will learn to draw bodies, render different fabrics, and begin to create collections. We'll talk about famous fashion designers like Coco Chanel and Christian Siriano, and take part in fashion challenges. By the end of class, students will sew something they designed. Fashion Design students gain so much confidence throughout the course. You simply will not believe what your kid can do!
Sewing students will learn to gain proficency on the sewing machine by sewing projects they will love. Every kid's first project will be a draw string bag- to keep their projects in, of course! After that, they will pick from a themed selection every month and sew what they like at their own pace.
Adult Sewing is for anyone 18+. Classes are on a drop-in basis, though it is strongly suggested that you reserve your seat ahead of time. Adults will work at their own pace on a variety of projects of their choosing.
United States History through fashion is a class for kids ages 8-12, but is flexible. It is designed for homeschooled kids. Kids will learn about every decade of the US from 1900-2019, one decade each class. We will focus on the major events of each decade and how they impacted indivuduals. Kids will pick their favorite (human) character and transform them into each decade's clothing, thinking about how that character's personality might influence their choices. This class is a great introduction to big topics like US involvement in WWI and WWII, the Civil Rights Movement, 9/11, and general pop culture. We will watch clips of movies and more.
