Creative Writing and Recycled Arts Camp for Girls

1 March 2009 One Comment

”Take My Word For It!” girls-in-fashions-made-with-recycled-materials1 unleashes creativity and makes new uses out of stuff we throw
away. Our summer camp is for girls, ages 9-12, who love to make things.
We aim to stretch their imaginations about what can be used to create
fashion! Our day is divided into 2 parts–in the morning campers will
learn how to design and create their own clothing from recycled
materials with artist, Daphne Ruff. Daphne’s wearable sculptures from recycled materials have been seen in installations, performances and videos. Currently she designs and sells purses from recycled materials and teaches art, and art history, at The Academy in Berkeley.

The girls will spend the afternoons diving into words, stories and
creative flights of fancy with creative writing teacher, and camp
founder, Sondra Hall. Sondra teaches her creative writing program,
”Take My Word For It!” in five east bay elementary schools.
At the end of each session, family and friends will watch the girls
strut their stuff in a live fashion show of our fabulous creations, and
also hear a reading of our writing.
