I'm extremely excited to share photos from the first ever Artfully Awear workshop! A Saturday class through the Waverly program, this particular session was geared toward girls ages 9 - 11, and was hosted by the boutique Torly Kid. We had a fantastic afternoon learning about inspiration and making our own masterpieces! If you're interested in attending or hosting an Artfully Awear workshop, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to our wonderfully creative inaugural group of budding artists & designers, to Molly Wills, director of Waverly, and to Torly Kid for providing a space!
|We started off by talking about inspiration and our favorite colors. Each girl got to choose an accessory in her favorite hue and don it in a creative way throughout the class.|
|To get warmed up, the girls were given blank fashion design templates and asked to draw an outfit inspired by a work of art that we discussed.|
|Their creations were completely fabulous, and clearly captured the artistic inspiration!|

|After discussing the artwork that inspired my pom pom jacket, the girls got to work, adorning a purse, a hat, a dress, and sunglasses with colorful pom poms in striking patterns.|
|After the collection was complete, they posed for photos with their masterpieces!|

|They were so proud of their creations, and we had so much fun with this photo shoot!|
|All in all, I was so impressed by the girls' willingness to listen and learn, and they taught me so much more about inspiration and helped me to see things in new ways. I look forward to the next Artfully Awear workshop!|
