This ongoing Drawing Club investigates clothing throughout history. We will study the form and function of clothes in historical contexts before drawing our own. Paper Dolls or Fashion forms are used.

Class experience

Learners will explore history through the lens of clothing and fashion while exploring in their own drawings.

Yvonne, B.Mus McGill University, is an interdisciplinary artist with a wide range of interests.  
"I like to upcycle old clothing, create collage and assemblage sculpture, create electronic music and I work a lot with recycled materials and papercrafts.   As a homeschooling mom of an ND learner, I've developed project based learning opportunities that combine curricular expectations with specific interests.  I am of Metis and European heritage and enjoy exploring history and current art trends in my culture as well.  Learner Led project based learning is where we connect with learners and inspire them to continue in their learning journey. "
