Dress Me Up

This morning at the OKCMOA I had an eager group of toddlers join me for a fun class revolving around our new exhibit, Sketch to Screen: The Art of Hollywood Costume Design. It is a glorious exhibit filled with over 85 garments and accessories worn in Hollywood films that are on loan from private collectors and Hollywood Studios. IT IS AMAZING. It was a lot of fun to share with the children. In this class we gathered ideas from the exhibit and translated them to a collage person.

To begin we created a background for our costumed people. I gave the kids tag board and cut squares of construction paper. The used a glue stick to apply.

Next we visited the exhibit for inspiration and returned to create our little people. I had an assembly line of fabrics, felt, yarn, buttons, sequins and more for the kids to go through and take back to their workstation.

The kids made design choices, but the parents were on hand to help to cut the yarn and fabrics.

To finish we glued our people on our backgrounds and called it a day! Here are some of our finished projects.
