SDVAN and FOCUS have embarked on a project to enliven the SD art scene by cross pollinating the fashion and art worlds. By putting together teams consisting of an artist, a fashion designer, a teacher and a documenter, we hope to encourage products with immense creative energy. The teams will collaborate and mentor each other to gain new skills. Events featuring the Art Meets Fashion theme will include:

Project Description


Fashion Designers:April Cromer (AMF team Elevation photo Aurelia d’Amore) ,

SDVAN is delighted to launch Art Meets Fashion in March 2010 with an estimated completion in the Spring of 2011.We are happy to partner with FOCUS to bring this collaboration to the SD Community. The exhibition will feature the results not only of the collaboration of the artist and fashion designer, but also the documentation of the process by talented videographers, writers and photographers. An exciting component of the team is the educator who will be asked to create lesson plans for their classrooms and general publication. Priority has been given to teachers who work with at risk teens. Our goal is to include teens within the teams when supervision by teachers can be provided.

Reflections and Flow:The name Reflection and Flow emanates from swimming pool paintings, which explores the attributes of light reflected in and on moving water. Not only are patterns created but more deeply, a mystery about layers of coexisting universes. Fashions grab those concepts and dive deeply into them.

AMF Goals

  • Invigorate student to support the arts either as participants or consumers
  • Promote San Diego regional arts through the San Diego Visual Arts Network, FOCUS, and our partners
  • Create additional awareness for these supporting organizations
  • Foster relationships between visual artists, fashion designers, educators, venues, and supporting industries
  • To benefit non-profit Art and Fashion educational programs for teens (15-19 years-old)
  • Expose the public to the creativity our region has to offer
  • Enlighten the public on the advantages of buying local
  • Nurture San Diego style and raise the bar on creativity
  • Encourage art collecting and connoisseurship
  • Stimulate the San Diego economy

Part 1: Artist MeetsFashion Project

Select 11 local San Diego regional teams consisting of 1. A fashion designer 2. A visual artist 3. A teacher connected to an existing educational program 4. A documenter (any media allowed word, photo, video etc)

  • Request that the designer and artist make a related or combined fashion item and art work
  • Encourage the teacher to develop a lesson plan for teens inspired by the collaboration subject
  • Document this process for inclusion in exhibition venues

Goals: The teams will collaborate and mentor each other to gain new skills.These professional will have the opportunity to give back to the community through the mentoring process. The teachers will generate exciting lesson plans to take back to their students. The documenter records and displays the process as part of the education of the public. Note:It is possible that one person will play multiple roles – example: artist, may also be the teacher or the fashion designer may also act as the documenter.  

Some Suggested Themes / Inspiration Teens, Casual., Evening Wear., Repurposed/Green, Music/Dance, Political, Futuristic, Erotic, Ethnic, Model, Portrait, Paper

Part 2: Public Display

The results of the teams would be shared through
  • A fashion show (launch party) – including art and possibly some teen models
  • Exhibitions for each team would take place at a variety of galleries and boutiques (to coincide with the fashion show and organized ideally in clusters.
Goals: To raise money for the education component of the project and to showcase the work produced

Part 3: Art Meets Fashion Teen Education Program

ART MEETS FASHON LESSON PLANS

We are pleased to announce that our lesson plans are now listed on the CARE website. (Collaborative Arts Resources for Education).

An exciting and important component of the team is the educator who will be asked to create lesson plans for their classrooms and for general publication. Many of our team teachers are working with at risk teens for example at ARTS: A Reason to Survive, SD Center for Children. Arts Media Teen Producers, and St. Madeleine Sophie's Center . Funds raised by the Art Meets Fashion project will go to help buy supplies and tools for those schools in need to implement these lesson plans and to document and display the resulting works.Lesson plans should combine art and fashion and show both as a career path as well as tool for self expression. Lesson plan will comply with California Content Standards. Please see our Sample lesson plan PDF. We are offering grants to the educators on our teams to help with the cost of teaching their lesson plans. Grant Application

Our goal is to include teens within the teams when supervision by teachers can be provided. We would like to include some teens in the fashion show when appropriate. We will be showcasing the results of their lesson at the SD International Airport during the summer of 2011. The exhibition will feature the results not only of cross pollination of the artist and fashion designer, but also the documentation of the process of collaboration with the educator. The documenters are all talented videographers, writers and photographers. Each team will choose a theme and those will include environmental issues, futuristic visions, and science and art connections. See theme details after Sept 15, 2010 Independent teens who wants to work on the theme Art Meets Fashion may enter the free Art Meets Fashion Online Competition until April 15, 2011. There is a special category for those from 14 -18. The competition is free of charge and will be juried by Kay Colvin, director of the L Street Gallery. Lesson plans developed in Part I should combine art and fashion and show both as a career path as well as tool for self expression


Goals:
Invigorate student to support the arts either as participants or consumers

The Art Meets Fashion project has many advantages:

  • It allows for many, many collaborations - we can call on designers, artists, galleries, boutiques, writers, event planners etc. We have many volunteers in these specialized areas.
  • It has an educational component which is aimed at an under served teen age group.
  • It will raise the bar for quality, challenge all involved to be creative and give confidence within the industry with a social celebration of the results.
  • It will engender lots of positive PR

Collaborative Design Project Benefits: Team members will substantially benefit from this collaboration through:

  • Exposure to a broad audience base
  • Exhibition/Sales opportunities
  • Networking with a wide range of new professional contacts
  • Recognition by peers and industry leaders
  • Documentation of work including event catalog
  • Contribution to art education for the youth of the San Diego region
