Pre-College: Experimental Art: Wearable Work

$450

with Caitlin McCormack

Calendar Next available session starts Jul 29, 2024 at 10 am, runs for 1 week

Expand your art making abilities and dive into the world of experimental art! Sparked by imagination, students will construct artful garments, masks, props, and more. Class attendees will gain familiarity with a variety of fabrics, sewing notions, glue, cardboard, and found objects, with a strong emphasis on using repurposed/sustainable or discarded materials as artmaking media. Each class meeting will be dedicated to building a different wearable piece of art; a mask, a glove/gauntlet, a hat, a prop for a character of the student’s creation to use (such as a tool, a talisman, etc.), and a tunic/cape/gown.

Unique to this course, most of the supplies will be provided, though there are some items that each student must also bring to class.

Additional materials list will be emailed to registered students two weeks before class and made available on PAFA's website.
