Costume Design & Technology Commission

Projects for Teaching Costume Design and Technology has been an ongoing project of the Costume Commission for over ten years. Volume 1, published in 1998 and edited by Pat Martin, inspired everyone from the instructor entering the profession to the experienced teacher looking for a new approach.

USITT Costume Design & Technology Commission continues to solicit ideas for Volume 2 of Projects for Teaching Costume Design and Technology. Commission members can contribute to the project by sharing projects that have been successful in the classroom. It is very easy to submit a project. A Project Submission Form is available on the USITT Costume Commission web page. Under Commission News, a link will lead to a pdf form that can be submitted electronically or printed and mailed.

For members who are looking for fresh ideas to inspire students in the classroom, this project can be a great help! In addition to soliciting submissions, the editors are seeking educators willing to try the projects in their classrooms and provide feedback. Anyone wishing to see a list of the submissions to date in "teaser" form, e-mail For those interested in trying one of the projects in a classroom environment, a complete submission will be sent.
