Calling all fashion designers. BHS Rock the Runway along with Studio-Batavia Visual Arts Booster is looking for middle school students (incoming 6th, 7th or 8th graders for the 2015-2016 school year) interested in fashion design. Spend a week this summer perfecting a wearable art piece, made of anything but fabric. We will train you in the art of the armature and manipulation of found objects to create your design. After you have finished your work of art, celebrate this accomplishment with friends and family at an artist’s reception in your honor at Special Occasions Boutique in Batavia from 6-7pm on July 30th
Dawn Zalkus, Batavia High School art teacher, will lead this fashion workshop with the help and BHS Rock the Runway high school designers that will assist participants in the creation of their designs. Enrollment is very limited, as we will only be accepting 10 participants. Each iFashion designer will work off a mannequin that we will provide for the duration of the class. Armature and binding materials will also be provided. Participants will work one on one to develop a design that meets their vision. In order to execute each participant’s vision successfully, designers should plan on bringing in their own supplies to cover the armature (skeleton) created in class. Limited material choices will be provided: i.e. book pages, coffee filters, and tissue paper. Any other embellishments/supplies for their designs should be brought to class. More information will be sent with registration confirmation. We look forward to working with the iFashion designers and fashioning fabulous creations.
