Creative Entrepreneurship - A Summer Workshop for Teens & Tweens


Is your tween / teen creative or entrepreneurial (or both)? This engaging and thoughtful summer workshop will cover the art and science of starting and managing a creative business. It is meant to bridge students from traditional summer camps and start to prepare them for leadership and work experiences. At least half of each session will be dedicated to designing / creating and participating in student-led activities.  Each student will create at least one meaningful project each day and the group will decide at the beginning of the session which projects to create.  Some of the pre-determined projects will be donated to the local community. 



Each session is led by Tara Cadenhead, owner and founder of Marquess Studios.  Sessions will be divided up to achieve the following objectives. 


  • Understand how a mission/vision, brand and culture create the foundation for a sustainable business
  • Learn about the different operational areas of a small business - we will also walk to other local businesses and non-profit partners to learn about their operations!
  • Practice basic techniqes of project management
  • Utilize tools for working with wood, leather, metal and other media
  • Learn basic design elements for marketable and quality products
  • Identify personal strengths and how to leverage them effectively (includes practice interviews for first jobs!)
  • Brainstorm ways  to engage with the community / give back
