Would you consider your teen a fashionista? Do they dream about being a designer at the New York Fashion Week? Instead of having a mediocre summer, give your artistic teen the gift of a rewarding learning experience at camp. Here are 5 reasons to attend our fashion and design summer camp:
- Explore Creativity
- Build a collection or portfolio of work
- Increase Collaboration & Teamwork
- Develop Independence and Self Confidence
- Exposure to fashion and design career opportunities
Art programs are the birthplace for future leaders. During the school year, many children have limited exposure to art programs. A fashion and design program allows students to fully express themselves with no limits. Your teen can develop innovative ideas, and problem-solving skills with their imagination. Fashion and design camps foster out of the box thinking in a creative setting.
Teens who are serious about a career in fashion and design should have a portfolio of their best work. Colleges and future employers will find this impressive. At fashion and design camp, students will learn basic sewing skills, how pattern pieces are shaped to make garments, and much more. With focus, hard work, and inspiration, your teen will fall in love with making their own fashion collection this summer.
Teens who participate in fashion and design programs learn how to work with others from different backgrounds. By attending a diverse summer camp, a student will develop an understanding and appreciation for different cultures, which translate to better leadership skills.
Social skills such as self-confidence and independence are critical to help cope with life. Fashion and design camp, instills these values throughout the various activities. Students get the chance to determine how their garments will look and feel, and towards the end of camp, they will also get an opportunity to present their creations to family and friends. Kids learn that their contribution to the group is integral to its success—even if they don’t have the solo or lead role.
Students who major in a fashion related degree, have many future job opportunities, such as Fashion Designer, Stylist, Buyer, Merchandising Representative, Journalist/Blogger, Publicist, Marketer, Retail Owner, and much more. During fashion and design camp, teens will get exposure to the work and skills needed to become successful in the fashion industry.
