Class Experience

Students will learn what was happening in the United States and the world during the 1900s, 1920s, 1940s, and 1950s.
Students will learn how the events of the decade impacted fashion and influenced the clothing that men, women, and children wore.
Students will engage in historical research by looking for their own pictures of the decade we are covering, using the pictures to draw their own outfits, and asking family members to share pictures and stories of their own experiences during those time periods. 
Along with turn-of-the-century history, modern US history is a favorite time period of mine. My master's degree is in American Studies and I spent a portion of my undergrad program studying the 1960s. 
Each week students will be encouraged to try out a hairstyle from the time period, sketch an outfit in the decade's fashion, look online for pictures of outfits or hairstyles, or (depending on decade being studied) ask their parents or grandparents to share photos from the decade. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
