DezignKidz hosts summer fashion camp

Fledgling fashionistas are invited to attend DezignKidz Summer Camps at Covington School, 205 Covington Road, Los Altos.

The camps, aimed at youth 7-12, focus on the fashion world and explain how to take a garment or accessory from concept to completion in weeklong programs.

Offerings include Fashion Dezign 1, Fashion Dezign 2 or Artistic Accessories, where budding designers can learn techniques in weaving, sewing, fabric printing/dyeing and jewelry making and use them to make purses, belts, hair accessories and more.

The camps culminate in a fashion show July 29.

For session dates and registration information, visit or call 346-5896.

Summer classes open for registration

Registration is open for the Los Altos Recreation Department’s summer offerings, including Redwood Grove camps and classes in filmmaking and animation, theater arts, Indian cooking, golf, soccer and ice-skating, among others.

The Recreation Department offers a 10 percent discount for Redwood Grove camps, Camp Shoup and Camp Jelly Bean if enrolling multiple siblings or if a child attends more than one week of camp.

Foothill College increases fees

Foothill College has increased its per-unit fee to $24, effective in the fall.

In March, Gov. Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 70, the education trailer bill, which included a student-fee increase at all 112 California community colleges.

At Foothill and De Anza colleges, both of which are on the 12-week quarter system, the per-unit fee will increase from its current $17 to $24 per unit for Fall Quarter classes.

At community college campuses that observe the semester system, the fee rises from $26 to $36 per unit.
