Reilly, Rea; Stone, Janice; Hitch, Sherilyn; Smith, Charlotte; Berkland, Melva L.; Atkin, Gret
This advanced unit of the ?4-H Clothing Project Series? expands further on the skills and knowledge learned in earlier programs, and prepares students for setting out on their own. Students will learn how to develop new ideas unique to their personalities. Creativity will be sparked, leadership skills will be honed, and volunteer opportunities will arise. Principles of design, fashion, clothes shopping, advanced fiber knowledge, tailoring, stain removal, care for accessories, skin care, hair coloring, posture, history, and interview preparation are covered along with many other topics. Upon completion of the curriculum, and sometimes much sooner, students will be able to develop their own unique ?Strategies for Clothing?, and apply their best thinking on many different levels as they enter adulthood.
