Synopses of Courses - Certificate Program in Stage Sets and Costume Design
An Advanced Exercise in Clothing Design

The purpose of these “ tasks” is not to make life difficult, on the contrary, they are for preparing students for the coming courses in costume design that they will take during the third year of the course. When students reach the third year and are faced with a costume design project they will have the appropriate tools to execute the project successfully.
