The Storyboard
Tebbetts, Carolann
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v108 n2 p52-53 Oct 2008
Since the introduction of the reality show "Project Runway" on Bravo, four seasons ago, high school corridors have been buzzing with aspiring fashion designers. Many of these student designers have "ferocious" fashion ideas as well as artistic talent and a gifted eye for design. Yet, in reality, fashion design is a non-entity in the art curriculum at most high schools. In this article, the author describes the Art of Fashion, a new course offered at her school that rides on the trend of the "Project Runway" buzz. The course includes making a fashion "storyboard," a culminating assignment that brings together the two-dimensional and conceptual considerations of the fashion design puzzle.
