Fashion Camp—On-Campus (Ages 10-13)

This camp introduces young designers to fashion with an emphasis on discovering their own style while learning the technical skills that allow them to take their designs from concept to reality. Activities guide students through the process of developing original ideas, finding inspiration for fashion in the world around them, and responding to the work of other artists and designers. Students build fundamental skills in fashion research and drawing, draping, garment construction, and machine and hand sewing. Students also explore sculptural draping by using paper to create exciting experimental looks and deconstruct garments to create new forms. Each camp ends in an exciting runway show for parents and friends. Lessons and projects change each camp so students may enroll in multiple camps over the summer.

Don't forget! We offer optional aftercare for campers for an additional hour at the end of the day full of art making, games and outdoor time, as well as some much needed end-of-day relaxation. To purchase aftercare for this course, add this aftercare course to your cart before checking out!
