I wrote a question on the board "What is Emily Ramshaw's power suit?"
You were asked to google this question and go to the corresponding link to read the article and look at the pictures. Jot your thoughts on paper and bring them to class for a discussion. I am not restricting the discussion in any way, look at the pictures to analyze the fit, read the article so you can understand Emily's point of view and then write down your thoughts on both.
The other bit of information was sent to me by the organizers of the Creativ Festival regarding a spring competition called the Mad Hatter! It is as followe
we challenge you to be mad as a hatter!
Want to showcase your creative skills? Take part in The Crochet
Crowd's Mad Hatter Challenge with over $2500 in prizes to be shared by the creators of 5 of the most outlandish hats meeting The Alice Hooks in Wonderland theme as determined by the Creativ Festival visitors.
By participating in this challenge you have a chance to win 1 of 5 -
$500 prize packages, the opportunity to showcase your creativity and
the added bonus that your hats are also giving students an opportunity
to pursue their educational dreams through The Crochet Crowd Scholarship Program.
All hats are due at The Crochet Crowd by April 1st, 2014. Every hat submitted will be on display at Creativ Festival where a Creativ Festival Judging Panel will select the best 10 before the show opens on April 25th, 2014. Guests attending the Festival will vote for their favourite. The recipient of the top 5 votes will each win a $500 prize package.
Plus... All hats submitted for The Crochet Crowd exhibit will be part of an all new fundraiser, with all proceeds going towards creating Educational Awards for Fashion Design Students in Ontario, Canada.
This means your students competing in Project Creativ Catwalk this fall! Visit the Crochet Crowd Booth #153 on Saturday, April 26th between 2 pm and 5 pm and get inspired to place your bid and help this worthy cause.
