Activities for the day include:
– Getting to know you! We’ll be doing a fun activity for the campers to get to know each other. We like to start our day out with kindness!
-Accessory making! We’ll be making jewelry with found objects.
-Art Heart! Our kiddos will be designing a piece of art for the holidays. With this activity lead by our partners at The Urban Angels, doing good for our city.
– T-Shirt recovery! We’ll be taking a plain white shirt and completely converting it into a dress / shirt / skirt combo, or anything that our camper desires. Darlene C. Ritz will be joining us for this with her awesome t-shirt tying and embellishing skills! Darlene is Chair of Fashion Design at RMCAD, an instructor and designer. This will include stenciling, embellishing, no sew techniques for altering to give the t-shirt some shape, painting, and whatever the imagination can create.
-Learn to walk the runway and pose for the camera. We LOVE bringing in designers and models to share their talent with our young ones, giving them confidence and showing them how to strut their stuff! Alyssa O’Harold is a recent graduate of Barbizon and will be going to IMTA in New York in July.
We had such a wonderful fashion camp last month! One of the fun components of our last fashion camp was working with Ilya Kushnir and his company #BoothYa! C.Stephan of 4:42 Studios conceptualized the idea to have the campers take photos of themselves in the photobooth and then trace their photo so they could design their fashion piece onto their sketch. Fun ensued throughout the day! A HUGE thank you to non for your generous donation in making this idea happen!
On March 19th, we held our fashion camp for fashionistas between the ages of 5-15 and had an action packed day of fun!
Our campers learned about inner beauty and being kind with Denver Style Magazine editor Heather Okimoto. They learned how to introduce themselves and compliment each other in a way that led to new friendships. It was so much fun to see this transpire!
Next Jeremy Willard and I (Brandi Shigley) shared our upcycle designs and our campers went to work, sketching and making their own designs. A beautiful mess of creativity filled up our headquarters at Green Spaces.
Model, pop singer, stylist, and producer Dorian Phaero taught our campers how to walk the runway being confident and fierce.
After they learned the walk, it was off to hair and makeup!
After hair and makeup were done, it was time to walk the runway!
We had such a wonderful time! Thank you to all of you who participated in the event and for giving your young fashionista an opportunity to dive into the fashion world!
