MARCH 16-20, 2015





Everything and the Kitchen Sink
Ages 7-10

Over the course of each day, campers are introduced to the amazing world of design through a variety of projects that provide a well-rounded experience in all fields of design. Campers will build structures, discover crazy new materials, create fashion lines, develop digital animation movies, devise solutions to environmental issues, and construct new and wacky toys with a diverse set of materials.

Ready To Wear or Back to Basics?
Ages 9-13

Young designers will explore the world of Ready-to-Wear, starting with the basics, of course. Exploring everything from sketching and designing to sewing and construction, budding sartorialists will construct their own top and bag, as well as a host of accessories complete with embellishments that compliment their individual style.
