We’ll take a look at Anime, cartoons, comic books, manga, TV, and video game characters. Come up with creative ideas to take your drawing from paper to reality. Learn sewing basics. We will take a look at fabric, materials, and tools best used for costumes. We’ll spend time with construction, making patterns, cutting, gluing, and finishing. Characters all need props and make-up, so we’ll spend some time with prop ideas and how best to make them. Basic make-up techniques and products.
Most materials can be sourced free or very cheaply. Access to a sewing machine is helpful but not required.
$10 supplies fee covers fabric for weekly assignments, thread, pins, and sample kits
Students should bring a sketchbook and drawing tools (pencils, pens, colored pencils) to class each week as well as any other materials students determine needed for their final project.
Hand-sewing needles & thread are useful but not required.
Most weeks there will be about an hour of work to complete at home including sewing, sketching, sourcing materials, and research. There are weekly fun assignments and challenges. Each class will begin with a short review of the completed assignment and how it might factor into your project. Success in this course is dependent on students doing work outside of class. While this is not a graded course, we expect all students to complete all of the assignments to the best of their ability.
