Create an Outfit for a Princess, Superhero, or Dog!
Taking inspiration from fashion in the Museum’s collection as well as the special exhibition The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, our project this month is to channel your inner designer to make miniature outfits for a character you create. This character could be yourself, a friend, a pet, or someone from your imagination. You’ll receive a wooden block on which you’ll make your character and then choose from a variety of materials to make his or her outfit. You can also use the reverse side of the block to make an entirely new design!
Once you are finished, stage your own fashion shoot with your friends and family by bringing your creations to our miniature runway where we’ll take pictures and project them on our screen in the Studio. All photos will also be posted to our Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/centerforcreativeconnections/; check out some of the fantastic fashions people created this past weekend!
Before you leave, be sure to take our super-fun fashion scavenger hunt for families! Free copies are available in the Studio during the art activity. The scavenger hunt will help you uncover some of the traditional, unique, and sometimes weird fashions from works in our collection.
Studio Creations is an art-making activity for families offered Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00-3:30 p.m. (with some exceptions). Discover a new art-making activity each month! Join us in the Center for Creative Connections where volunteers are on hand to help your fmaily make unique art projects. Studio Creations is free with paid admission to the Museum and all materials are provided.
