For those looking to sketch and design distinct, interesting costumes and clothing for every range of character, this Costume Design art workshop is a must! By the end of this class, students will have the tools they need to sketch, draw, and design dynamic costumes and outfits for any kind of character.
Costume Design is all about confidence in drawing clothing, cuts and shapes that suit the character, and a motif that ties the design together. From Casual Wear to Battle Ready, we will be covering a wide whole range of costume types and dressed characters.
The class will start with the basics of depicting clothing, including drawing folds and drapery and developing line quality. Students will learn how to capture a variety of different materials, including how these materials interact with the body and with body movement. Next, we’ll explore silhouette, and how to make a costume ‘pop!’ with a variety of cuts and shapes that build the design. The class will finish off by exploring motif, and how to execute your costume theme in a variety of interesting and eye-catching ways.
Please note materials are not included in this cost. Students will be given a material list prior to the start of the class.
