Costume Design and Making
In- person free after-school course offered to teenagers ages 15-19 at the Athenaeum Music and Arts Center in Barrio Logan. The class will function like a laboratory where students will begin to develop their designer instincts guided through a number of hands-on costume research projects that will enable them to experiment and work with different tools, materials, techniques and costume inspirations.
COVID -19 safety guidelines followed during class.
This course began on April 5, 2021 and it will be ongoing until the early Fall.
