THE-310   Costume Design3 credits

Prerequisites: THE-201 and THE-240

Costume Design is an essential part of the theatrical experience. The clothing an actor wears is another color in the theatrical palette that can reinforce time, place and style. By developing strong artistic choices through patterns, draping, and fashion history, the costumer works with the artistic team in creating a unified environment that enhances the story being told. Students will learn how to evolve a character from the written text to a color rendering. Costume history and various rendering mediums will be explored.
