Description

We are seeking AMAZING Costume Design for our 2019 Summer Camp to join our new Theatrical Costume Design Program. We provide pre-teens/teens the opportunity to gain insight into an industry that has yet to offer young designers in-depth opportunities to experience what it takes to be in the theatre industry.

As a Theatrical Costume Design instructor, you will teach aspiring designers between the ages of 9-15. During each 1-week session, you will engage campers in a fun, nurturing, and educational environment.
