Sewing machines sitting everywhere, pictures of clothing designs decorating the walls, fashion textbooks overloading the cart. Where would all these things be? In the fashion and interior design classroom C-114 taught by Katy Disney.
Fashion and interior design were taught separately until this year, when they were combined to better align with state requirements.
Disney said one of the values of the class is the hands-on experience.
"The students get to do hands-on work, such as lots of projects and sketching," she said. "Students will get to sew, and hopefully get to complete interior design projects."
To teach this course to students at George Rogers Clark High School, Disney is certified in family and consumer science education, and in college she took classes in fashion design, textiles, interior design, design history and apparel construction.
"I've never taught this specific class before, but so far I have loved everything about this class," Disney said. "It's exciting to see my students taken an interest in this class and to see everything they are learning to do."
