GAP Designers open their office to 5th and 6th Graders!

Friday, December 6, 2019

On Wednesday 11/13, students headed over to GAP Inc. headquarters in San Francisco to learn more about the work of th GAP's Color Proud Council in driving the companies focus on diversity and inclusivity. This experience was a perfect connection to the Grade 5/6 current unit "Fashion plays a role in cultural diversity." Students toured the visual arts studio and the designers’ offices, learning how fashion designers sketch, decide on colors and fabrics to use, and how designs turn into actual clothes. Our students are currently designing and sewing their own fashions that connect to their identity, which they discussed with GAP designers. When asked the best part of this experience, one student exclaimed, " We got feedback on our projects from actual designers at GAP!"
