Youth Camps

Summer 2019

In partnership with the Burbank YMCA, Woodbury is offering these exciting youth camps to students who have completed grades 5 – 8.

 

Here's what we offer

Our Youth Camps offer an exceptional opportunity for middle school students (who have completed grates 5 – 8) to get an introduction to some of the most exciting disciplines. From architecture to fashion design to art and community, our camps are an engaging and fun way for students to learn and grow during their summer break.

Explore the art of mural painting!

June 24 – July 12, 2019 (3 weeks)
As a team, participants will develop a concept for a mural that they will paint locally. This camp includes basic drawing and painting techniques, lessons in preparing artwork for large-scale installation, and finally, painting the design on the exterior of a building. Come and be involved with an art experience few people get to do!

Discover the world of fashion!

July 15 – August 2, 2019 (3 weeks)

Participants will learn about the complete fashion
design process as they are provided samplings of:
Fashion sketching

  • T-shirt de-construction
  • Hand-sewing
  • Machine-sewing
  • Adobe digital skills
  • Paint on fabric
  • Crafts
  • Embroidery
  • Embellishments
  • Fashion show!

Examples of previous projects include: tie-dyeing a silk scarf, exploring Photoshop, designing a bag (making a pattern, picking a fabric and sewing a bag), and painting shoes to create a custom look.

Explore architecture and design!

July 15 – August 2, 2019 (3 weeks)

Experiment with 3-D printing and laser cutting, cutting-edge software, and explore architecture through traditional and digital hand drawing and model making. Students are introduced to design through model-making and drawing, an LA architecture field trip, outdoor sketching walks through our beautiful
campus, and presentations and group discussions. Projects from previous summers include building a group city model, designing building components
using digital fabrication tools, constructing a bridge and testing its strength, and drawing a house using digital software.
