Change The World One Sequin at a Time: A Contemporary Fashion Design Curriculum
Shoe design board created by student in Mrs. T's Fashion Design Course.
I have recently completed the Capstone project for my Master's Degree with the University of Florida Online. My project involved was to create a new contemporary Fashion Design Curriculum, and I have published the curriculum framework, unit and lesson plans, student work examples, homework ideas, and hundreds of relevant links on the topic. I hope other art educators will benefit from my hours of research and have even provided downloadable PDF's of the units for your convenience. I hope you will see that the topic of fashion design is a rich and inviting one for contemporary art education because it allows for examination of visual culture, globalism, multiculturalism, identity & values, drawing and painting techniques, and socio-cultural aspects that influence artists, to name a few. It is rewarding to teach and I have the greatest students in the world whose work I share on the following pages.
