On Thursday, May 5, we will move class to the Black Box Theatre for our Refashion Project Presentations. Each group will show us "before" pictures of their garments, explain their design and construction process, and model the finished costume.
Students are working in self-selected teams of three to create a complete costume out of a bag full of garments from our costume storage closet. Completed projects will be presented May 5 in the Black Box Theatre.
On Monday, April 25 we will have a guest speaker. Patricia Martin, Professor of Costume Design at the University of Arkansas will be spending the class period with us to share her portfolio and her design process.
After completing the basic hat, based on the Master Oval, students are being challenged to create a paper version of a hat with a different shape. Sone is giving each student a line drawing and scale drawings of the pattern pieces; students are drafting the full size version and putting the paper hats together.
