EDUCATIONAL AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS

In 2018 Arkansas Arts & Fashion Forum (AAFF) launched a year long Educational Pilot Program made possible by a generous grant from the Walton Family Foundation. This year of programming has focused on developing opportunities for those interested in the synthesis of fashion and art to learn professional skills towards the goal of incubating a true fashion industry in Arkansas.

AAFF has hosted workshops across the spectrum of professionalization for participants eager to get involved in the growing fashion community. Past workshops include Beginners Sewing, to Model Bootcamps, Hair and Makeup Best Practices for Diversity and Inclusion, to Product Development and the Power of an Item.

The workshop series is extremely successful and highly adaptive to the demands of the community. We are continuing to developing workshops into late 2019 and 2020. If you are interested in hosting a workshop or participating in future workshops, please contact us at contact@arkansasfashion.org to learn more!
