Wearable art parade gets weird, cool and very funky all at once

Every term, Marie Sivak’s “ART 117-Basic Design: 3D Foundations” class goes on a parade through the Sylvania Campus to show off their creations. In the class, SivakĀ helps the students explore ways of seeing and creating work that acknowledges personal artistic intentions. They examine various 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D media, and processes used to develop and encourage creative problem solving. Eventually, they establish the critical skills necessary to evaluate art through critiques, discussions and presentation. The last part is the wearable art parade. Enjoy!

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
