Our summer camp daily schedule is as follows:
9:30-11:30am Fashion Illustration
12-2pm Field Trips and Guest Speakers
2-4pm Sewing in the studio
Our instructors are all graduates of fashion programs from schools like FIT and Parsons. Our camper/teacher ratio is 5:1 in sewing class and 4:1 for walking field trips (3:1 for trips involving car service).
In a sewing class students begin using sewing machines day one. Instructors will teach the class how to safely use a sewing machine, thread a machine and actually sew garments. Teen students get to design their own garments and will shop for fabric and supplies on day 1.
In addition to sewing campers will learn fashion illustration each day; this includes sketching, designing and using paint and fashion markers to develop their designs.
We will also have select guest speakers visit who talk about their experience which may include design, merchandising and even starting their own line. Our guest speakers are all professionals who currently work in or own their own companies in the fashion industry. All guest speaking time includes an activity so our campers get to be hands on while learning from a pro!
