About the Teacher/Designer

Michelle is a Fashion Designer and a Mother of a 6 year old son who love to share her insights to teach younger generation and design design products. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communications and Master of Design in Fashion Design from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

She is also the Founder of Mizel Jewelry, which was launched in 2006 at Galleria/Lotte Department Stores, Leeum Museum of Contemporary Arts, and Rodin Gallery in Seoul, Korea. Her fashion accessories have been featured in Vogue, Elle, W, In Style, Bazaar, and other design magazines.

In her free time, she volunteers at Willow Chicago to teach children from K to 3rd grade.

About the Design Classes (Age 6-9)

In small classes (maximum of 4), children will learn different crafting skills like collage, sewing, beading, and knitting, to make fashion accessories and design objects. Using fabrics, sequins, beads, crystals, threads, clay pompoms, and other materials, they will develop their creativity and explore craftsmanship through their senses. At the end of each class, children will bring home a finished project. Michelle will encourage children to present and share their ideas and projects to the group to develop their presentation skills as a young emerging designer.
