The Line of Clothing: Rendering for Costume Design (DRA2311.02)

Charles Schoonmaker

Rendering is one of the fundamental techniques designers use to visualize their ideas. This class will explore various methods used to communicate visual ideas to directors, performers, producers, and other members of a creative team. While we will primarily work using traditional materials such as paper, pencil, and paint, you also will have the option to work in digital media. Class meetings will often involve discussion and critiques of students’ work as well as in-class work sessions.

Please note: this is not a garment construction class.
