Kid-preneur Empowerment Summer Camp at Letter Create

June 17, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

This summer Letter Create will be offering Kid-preneur Empowerment camps to encourage and show kids how to be successful through Art and Business.

Participants in the morning camp will participate in  hands on art activities, empowering talks, and daily sheets to take their lessons to a higher level at home and beyond!  We will also discuss how kids can make their art available to the public, now.  Through online and local ventures.  We will also discuss how to promote their art work and focus on success and empowerment through independent growth.

Each session has a daily themed according to our vision for empowering kids.

Day 1:  All About Me – what are you goals, dreams, plans?  We will explore this through collage, discussion and inspiration from to other artists.

Day 2:  Art and Crafting Talents – today you will bring your things that you have already created at home.  We will create a piece of art while we discuss different points of visual importance when displaying or selling art online or in person.  We will discuss affordable product photography, graphic design and all things visual for your talent.  Kids will also go home with a light box to photograph their art.  We also cover how to take photos with just a cell phone, tablet or camera.

Day 3:  Displaying and Selling Art – today we will discuss online platforms for selling art and crafts, local events and other out of the box ideas for selling arts and crafts.  We will also discuss the specifics of what you should say in our online listings, how to optimize your search and how to grow on Etsy.  We will also make a listing template.

Day 4:  Self Promotion – today we will discuss how to promote yourself locally and online, in a safe way.  We will also discuss finances including fees and taxes to be aware of.  We will finish the camp with a final presentation project (for personal use only).

This camp is for kids ages 10 – 18 years old.  We will provide all materials, instruction and snacks for the duration of the camp.  Please note in check out if you have any type of food allergies or health concerns.
