The goal of this course is to introduce students to costuming and costume design for theater and film. Students will apply sketching, drawing skills, and elements of design in order to develop clothing choices for film and theater characters. An understanding and visualization of character will be realized through research, clothing analysis, and appropriate textile applications. Students will learn how to design costume plots and charts, how to manage budgets, and how to prepare for portfolio presentations. Students will be required to participate in a design-related production crew during the semester. This course includes a lab fee. Prerequisites: TFMS 171, 275, or consent of the instructor.
