"I can't wait to be dazzled!" Maisie
That's what Maisie said as she walked from one room of the Rodarte exhibit into the next. It was dazzling! Children closely looked at the various dresses and decided which ones they liked best. Many children also had the opportunity to draw and/or take photos of their favorite pieces. Some children worked on new camera skills, like using the zoom feature. Caleb used the black and white filter on one photo, because he said, "That made it stand out." Caleb and Tommy were drawn to the signs by each dress that told when it was made and what materials were used to make it. Will was especially interested in the dates, and made a list of each date he saw in the exhibit. Elena loved every dress she saw. Many children agreed with Louise, who said, "I loved the purple flower dress."
"All of the red dresses were my favorite." Sam
The red dresses made an impression on several children. There was also a few Star Wars dresses that featured Luke, Yoda, and the Death Star. Upon viewing the Luke Skywalker dress, Tommy said, "That looks like what Luke was wearing." He made sure to take photos of the dresses and materials used so he could make it at school. He plans to make two copies, one for school and one for his mom. Other favorites included the spiky shoes!
