This is an explorative course focusing on finding your vision as a designer and learning to communicate your designs as an artist and craftsperson. In this course students will dive into works from theater, dance, fashion design and visual art to develop their personal design style. Through discovery and creative freedom, students will create their own designs and gain tools to communicate their ideas through visual renderings, paintings, and draping. In addition to design students will learn sewing techniques enabling them to make a basic garment to culminate the class.
