“Women in Black” Take a Field Trip

On Thursday, April 24, 2014 a team from the Intro Cosmetology Classroom at AVEDA Institute New Orleans attended a field trip to the New Orleans Museum of Art and Sculpture Garden. This team professionally dressed in all black were lead by educators Don Steen and Erin Burgett.

A Trip with a Purpose

The students were tasked with bridging the gap between traditional forms of art and hair as an expression of art.

As Cristen McGlothren, the Director of AVEDA Institute New Orleans, explained, “The objective of this field trip was to show the students how creativity can be expressed in a number of outlets.  The students were tasked with bridging the gap between traditional forms of art and hair as an expression of art.  Upon return to campus, the students built off of the inspiration from the field trip and created hairstyles that portrayed what they took from the Museum.”
