FASHION DESIGNER

Week 8 | Ages 8 - 12 | 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. | $135

Young girls graduate from playing dress up to creating their own designs! They will express themselves with their own fashion sense by following the same design principles used by professionals. This includes basic sketching techniques, coordination colors for the best effect and mixing textures and patterns for perception and scale. Cultural fashion history will be applied to all the girl’s individual style and portfolio. Designs come to life with beautifully patterned fabric, ribbons, sequins, jewels, and oodles of other embellishments. Collaborative “design team” challenges make this hands-on, minds-on adventure into the world of design very exciting. For your child’s safety, no sewing is practiced in this class. This camp is taught by an instructor from Fast Forward Kids.
