From the Teacher
Again thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me keep the arts alive in public schools. The materials arrived right in the middle of our pants projects. Students were making pajama pants in order to learn how to use a sewing machine and cut from a pattern. The pants were completed right before the holiday season and when we returned it was time for our student production.
In Brooklyn there is an event called Sing. Sing is a student musical competition between grades and possibly between schools. This was our first year participating so we only competed between grades. Students write, direct, design, and produce their shows on their own. Your support helped me supply students with materials and space they needed to create very specific pieces. Without the materials you provided these productions would not have been as well designed and visualize stunning.
Now my costuming class is creating shirts, both casual and dress. I'm having them read patterns more closely and use appropriate matching thread, which was something we weren't able to do prior. That will take us through Spring Break and for the remainder of April we will begin building our spring musical - In The Heights. Students will pull from our costume loft or building pieces themselves. And we have quite the cast with 30 students!
Our last event will be a 'fashion show' of sorts. Every year my school hosts an 'International Night'. We are an extremely diverse student body and we celebrate our cultures and traditions ever year. Working closing with the modeling club, my students will design outfits that represent them and their cultures. Students will then take this from paper to reality; the final test of a true costume or fashion designer.
