WEARABLE ART and the BODY
This course is focused on methods and techniques related to studying the human figure and creating wearable art pieces. We will blend interests in fashion, art, theatrical costume, ethnic clothing and body decoration to inspire you and generate fuel for a deeper understanding of how we celebrate and decorate the human body. Hands-on work time and guided instruction will leave students with a vast collection of developed drawings, ideas and prototypes and finished works that investigate the student's interest in wearable art.
