Culinary Arts: COOKING & BAKING CLASS: All things from scratch!
Breakfast + Lunch + Dinner + Meal Planning & Prepping + Breads + Cookies + Cakes + Presentation + Party Planning
Girls can expect fun! Each day of class will include time for new culinary techniques, refining old skills, menu inspiration, and natural life skills to improve confidence. Girls will love preparing for the end of the week friends and family culinary soiree!
Due to COVID-19, we merged the themes, student ages together, and our menu may adjust a bit. We are doing whatever we are able to give our girls the most variety and of course fun options every single minute and day of camp (of course!)!
Sketching + Sewing + MakeoversStart to finish design conceptions. Students design outfits during fashion sketch sessions, improve sketches with details in various mediums such as water colors, acrylic, and textured studio elements, then use the new class skills and time to make the vision a reality by the end of week. Imagine Ralph Lauren inspiration, then production, then an exhibit of his masterpieces. As a bonus, students will get to do “before and after” clothing, hair, and makeup makeovers on each other, as seen on tv!
FASHION PRODUCTION CLASS: Beauty Industry Presentation
Runways + Photoshoots + Wardrobe Building + Personal Image Development With this summers theme being “From Scratch”, think a blank canvas at this class, and the girls produce it all! Girls build photo backdrops, runway platforms, and brand their personal identity. The girls will still get to do some fashion poses and a final runway show, but will be working hard all week to be innovative with creative and positive ways to speak “girl power” into the average beauty industry. Think strong girls getting to express their value, worth, and creativity!
Girls can expect to learn new fashion and art techniques, refine existing creative skills, be inspired by the activities, and have a blast with our team who encourages them to embrace their body , personality, and gifts as God made them to be.
Believing in Yourself + Being Yourself + Communication + Friendships Girls can expect to feel good processing what they are feeling about the new school year ahead, and how they are going to make the best of it. Students will meet other girls who can lift them up during the school year, have peer encouragement on top student topics, learn some new tools for school confidence, and make artsy projects to bring home that will play as a visual reminder to be authentic and confident during the school year. This is a preferred prerequisite for any student joining the After School Confidence club during the spring or fall. All guardians attend “Tool & Topic” info session on Monday evening from 6-7pm to gain a better understanding of what the girls social, emotional, and scholastic topics of concern for the school year included in our first day of class. During this informational session, you will also be able to ask questions about how to respond to the girls questions during their class week, and find out about our school year Confidence Club that goes more in depth with tool application on Class topics.
School Delayed Camp
Fashion + Confidence + Cooking + Baking
Girls can expect a combination of fun from each of our Fashion, Cooking, and Confidence focused camps. The girls will vote on several daily artistic projects- anything from making handmade pasta, from scratch cookies or cakes, painting or embellishing garments, or painting a masterpiece! This is an Artsy focus, giving girls the chance to repeat anything they loved making during a summer camp, or getting one more chance to come experience the Abigail Academy fun if they were on our waiting list! Ms. Abbey will be leading daily activities!
