Steeling myself


Hurray! I have a new school's project. My favourite kind of work. This time its in conjunction with the music department, perhaps with a Caribbean theme. The lucky participants will be 40 13 to 14 year olds and as always, our time together will be very limited. Need to come up with something fun, fast and furious.
This morning I went back to my old college notebooks and found this idea I like. Am thinking large scale reverse applique.
The art department in this particular school doesn't have a textile background and it was suggested that it might be useful to cover as many techniques as possible. Costume design to music followed by sampling various of ways of making pattern, texture, etc would be my suggestion there. Next step is meet with teachers. Should be kicking off in February so more soon I hope.
