   Happy 2013 to you!
   This is year is going to be out of this world!                          
"Stellar", Screen printed yardage for mannequin "slip covers" for "Candy Coated Wonderland".

      The Studio School is on hiatus until May                                                       

Well...because we are preparing to blow minds with color and pattern in collaboration with the
Costume & Textiles Collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The exhibition, titled Candy Coated Wonderland curated by Dylis Blum, will be in the Perelman Building from May to November 2013. A special focus on youth art making highlights this summer's educational programming with super fab workshops including bike & helmet customizing with diamond stickers & fabric decoupage-ing and, of course poster & t-shirt screen printing

Cutest little  "slip covered" mannequins you ever did see will be part of the "Candy Coated Wonderland" installation at the Perelman Building, The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
