Most of the theater companies mentioned above also have other workshops for teens and adults. Kindly check their respective websites or Facebook pages for more information.  As for us, we’re enrolling our daughter again at Trumpets Playshop.  She had so much fun there last summer and is looking forward to another exciting Playshop this year.


Fashion Immersion for Teens at SoFA Design Institute

Here’s a great summer program for teens!  Those who have a keen eye for fashion and style would be thrilled to work side by side esteemed professionals in the fashion industry.  This summer, THE Collab Contessa collaborates with SoFA Design Institute and brings to us a 1-month long capsule series Fashion Immersion for Teens.

The 1-month program consists of 4 capsules with each one running for 5 consecutive days.  A student can choose among RETAIL, MARKETING, DESIGN, or MEDIA.  Ideally, though, a student is encouraged to take all four capsules to help him or her decide which career he or she would eventually pursue.

I collaborated with SOFA Design Institute on this with the goal of being instrumental to helping teens define the career paths they would like to take.

– Collab Contessa –

The students’ actual immersion experience will be at the offices of brand partners including Louis Vuitton, Folded & Hung, Chalk Magazine, and Aranaz.   The first capsule starts on March 31, 2014 so better enrol now lest you run out of slots.

Aside from the Fashion Immersion for Teens, SoFA Design Institute also has other summer programs for kids, teens, and adults. Follow @aminaaranaz ; @loraleesoong ; @dara_ddr ; @sofadesigninstitute on Instagram for more information and updates.

Trumpets Playshop Summer 2014

Schedule’s out and they’re now open for enrollment!  My little girl greatly enjoyed last year’s summer workshop.  It was also such a delight to watch her perform on stage during their recital at RCBC Theater.  (I just realized I never published the post about her recital…ooops!).  If you have kids who love the performing arts, the Trumpets Playshop Children’s Theater would be a great summer program for them.
