I'm looking for a day camp for a 12 year old girl who is interested in fashion and make-up. She is pretty serious about these pursuits. We are in Oakland but nearby east bay would also work. Thanks Looking for camp
Check out CCA- California college of the arts. I think they have programs for middle school aged students and possibly younger. Barry
Rhythmix Cultural Works in Alameda has a couple camps that might be of interest. The first appears to be full, but for next year, it's a sewing camp that culminates with a runway show of the outfits created by the campers. The second camp is fashion show production and is still open for this year. It focuses on hair, makeup, the sound and light systems, music, stage, sets, and actual production of the aforementioned runway show for the other camp. Here's the link: http://www.rhythmix.org/camps.html. Carrie
My daughter is interested in taking a hands-on fashion class this summer. I noticed that California College of the Arts offers all-day classes. Are there others being offered that might be of shorter duration and therefore more affordable? Thanks, d
Couple thoughts on Fashion Design.
(1) At ''Sew Now'' in Lafayette (corner of Moraga Rd and Moraga Blvd) there are fashion production classes. This is a new place. Give them a call to see if there is a fit. Week long classes. BART is 5-minutes walk through suburban town.
(2) For something less tame, check out Saffron Rare Threads in the city, near 17th and Delores.
There is a BART station nearby, but your kid has to be street smart to negotiate that scene.
The founders, Yugula and Priya, have apprenticeships for fashion design purposed people. Not for the weak of heart, but my oh my, very fun. Best of luck, Nathan
