Learn about Costume Design with this in-depth class!
Costumes speak for themselves. They tell the story of a place, the period, and most especially of a character. Whether it be a brave knight, strong-willed flapper, or an unlikely hero, you will be called to clothe them and bring them to life.
Conceptualizing a costume requires time travel, whether it’s in the past or into the future. Designing garments for France’s aristocracy during the French Revolution of 1789, or having to dress political refugees in a dystopian world in 2049, requires extensive research.
This class covers script and character analysis, finding the right source material, how colours relate to the story, audience expectations, concept mediums, and best practice for organization and presentation.
It is advised that students bring a notebook and writing tools.
