Design Innovation Summer Institute - Costume

The Design Innovation Summer Institute - Costume is a two-week, UC credit-bearing intensive for students interested in costume design for theater, film and television. This program provides opportunities to work with our distinguished faculty in classes such as Costume 101, Introduction to Costume Sketching, Silhouette, Sculpture and Costume Design for Theater, Film and Television. The combination of these courses will allow students to use the training to bring stories to life through their designs. Students will learn the technical components of breaking down a script and the art of collaboration with directors while gaining hands-on experience in research, sketching costumes, and creating mood boards and color palettes. Beyond the classroom, students will attend guest workshops that will cover portfolio and career preparation.

The program is designed for artists and students who seek additional discipline and training required for participation in a university theater program or a career in the entertainment industry. Participation in this institute is open to college and pre-college (14-20 years) students.

The program carries UC credit.

Students are engaged in activities and classes along with breaks throughout the day from 9:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. There will be evening classes/workshops that occur where students will be required to be present.
