Student work from 2012 and 2013 Rhode Island School of Design Summer Young Artist's Program Costume Design  course.

10-13 year old children designed and built these costumes themselves. They studied and then applied techniques of character analysis, image research, gesture drawing, sketching, rendering, surface design on existing garments, and basic garment construction.
