Class: COSTUME DESIGN: CLOTHES CAN MAKE THE CHARACTER
Instructor: Chelsea Kerl
Clothes say a lot about a person and about the circumstances of their day; you subconsciously think about that each morning when you get dressed. You can expand that thinking into made up outfits for fictional people and be a costume designer! In this class, we'll discuss the character analysis, research, and design process for a costume designer, and we'll also work on some designs of our own with whatever art supplies you have on hand: paper, magazines, colored pencils, markers, etc.
