DistributionHuman Thought and Expression
Core AreaNone

In this hands-on introductory class, students learn and put into practice the steps of the creative process necessary to articulate their theatrical costume design vision. Through several theoretical production projects, students examine the intersection of storytelling, visual research, artistic impulse, and script analysis that is the design concept’s point of origin. Consideration of the practical concerns of the costume designer’s role as collaborator inform and further develop students’ individual design work. Prior design or drawing experience is not necessary to participate fully in this class.
