Studio art students at Southern Fulton High School presented their annual fashion show to the rest of the student body on Friday, January 24. The students are in grades 9 through 12 and take studio art as part of their elective coursework with high school art teacher Carolyn Mottern.

The students were asked to create wearable fashion artwork from nontraditional materials such as wrapping paper, duct tape, pom poms, feathers, garbage bags, old lampshades, newspaper, even an old monopoly game! They worked on their pieces for a month in class and at home, then wrote up a brief summary of what they used, how it was used and how they envisioned their work to be presented.

During their art classes, the students presented their projects to a cafeteria full of their peers and faculty members. The show was well received and the pieces will be on display again in April at the annual Southern Fulton School District Student Art Exhibit.
