THE 327 Costumes and Make-Up

Detailed survey of clothing history with emphasis on periods most useful to contemporary theatrical production (i.e., classical, medieval, 17th, 18th and 19th centuries). Implications regarding trends in the morality, social values, and psychology of dress will be generated to establish a fundamental basis for theatrical design. Make-up and costume design, rendering, and construction techniques will be practically implemented in a laboratory situation. Students expected to engage in evening technical laboratory work as part of supervised campus extracurricular theatrical activity functioning at the time. Such involvement considered a part of the student's grade.
