THEA 253 - Costume Design
An introduction to the aesthetics and practice of costume design. The course examines the relationship between play and text analysis, concept, and production. It explores the costume designer’s responsibilities as artist and collaborator. Historical and visual research and the step-by-step development and realization of individual design concepts are introduced with the goal of expressing the students’ imaginations. Basic drawing and painting skills are taught and applied. A corresponding lab in the costume shop offers practical experience in basic costume construction techniques: patterning, draping, cutting and sewing.
