Fashion on Other Planets – A Design Class

Futuraskolan International Rådan’s grade 7:b class got to use their imagination in sewing class. Learners selected a planet and researched the meaning of the planet’s name and what the planet is like. Learners then used this information to create an outfit for people who lived on the planet (assuming that there was an oxygen atmosphere and the inhabitants were human).

The learners showed amazing creativity in their designs!

Old Plates…Nothing Goes to Waste at Futuraskolan Rådan!

What happens when art teachers discover dozens of old plates in a dusty corner of the basement?  Well, creative designing, of course!

Earlier this term, the art teachers found a few dozen unused plates tucked away in the basement and they immediately started coming up with ideas of how to incorporate them into the art lessons.

This week the students started making holiday plates using some special paint and a couple of potters wheels.

Stay tuned to see their creative results!
