Fashion Construction for Middleschoolers
Manitou Art Center, Manitou Springs, CO
Fashion Construction introduces young designers to fashion with an emphasis on discovering their own style, learning foundational skills in garment construction, and exploring the materials of fashion and their environmental impact. Students build skills in fashion research and drawing, altering existing garments, pattern-making, and machine sewing. Activities guide students through the process of developing ideas, finding inspiration, responding to the work of other artists, and considering the impact of fashion design on their community and communities around the globe. As their designs develop, additional technical skills are introduced, including fabric printing, embroidery, and finishing techniques.
