You'll learn about script analysis, time period research, color theory, costume sourcing and creation, and rendering. We will spend hands on time examining how one costume piece can be used in many different ways for different characters, alterations, and drawing techniques to get your vision across to your production teammates. Explore how costume design can enhance the visual storytelling of theater and create a rich setting for any play or musical. This class will provide insight for those interested in costume design but will also help theater artists of all disciplines to be better collaborators and colleagues.
