It Ain't Easy Being GREEN- and FASHIONABLE!

My students need materials to create recycled and upcycled fashions! We are going GREEN (fashionably, of course!)...but we need some help!

My Students

Who are my students? They are a diverse, enthusiastic group of high school students, grades 9-12.

I teach students of all ability levels, from the absolute beginner to the accomplished artist…all in the same class!

The school where I teach is a Title 1 School and we are very diverse, serving students from a variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

My students are highly engaged in their work- and LOVE art class- and I love them! Thank you so much!

My Project

My classroom is a hot spot for FASHION!

My students LOVE to sketch their own fashion designs and create accessories...but with a GREEN twist!

It's all about recycled and up-cycled here- leaving an impression while NOT leaving a carbon footprint on the runway!

Right now my students create designs on makeshift dress forms- or each other! It really makes it difficult to create runway ready looks. It would be amazing to have some dress forms and supplies to help create our looks! I signed up for dress forms, masking tape, sewing supplies and other items that will inspire our earth friendly looks.
