Intro to Fashion Camp—On-Campus (Ages 10-13)

This new one-week camp introduces young designers to fashion with an emphasis on experimentation and discovering their own style. 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 clothing transformation/manipulation through hand sewing techniques, pleating, and gathering in addition to embellishment through beading, applique, and embroidery. The class also explores experimental projects using non-traditional materials and found objects to create one-of-a-kind accessories. This camp ends with a final exhibition showcasing the variety of projects and unique designs for friends and family.

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!
