2017 Evening For Educators

Common Threads: Connecting Fashion Design with Nature

Southern Utah Museum of Art - Education Classroom

Based on an exhibit of the work of designer Electra Casadei, we will be designing pieces of jewelry, clothes and masks. Elementary and secondary teachers with be separated into grade-level workshops and participant in hands-on projects that will explore science and design integration. The projects will connect Casadei's fashion design with inspiration from animals and insects found throughout Southern Utah. 

One of the largest running programs for the State Wide Arts Partnership (SWAP), the Evening For Educations,  professional development program is made possible by the Professional Outreach Program in the Schools (POPS) with funds from the Utah State Legislature.
