The Costume Studio & Weekend Demonstrations

Explore the vital role that costumes play in developing characters and telling stories on stage and film—just like in Star Warsand the Power of Costume. The DAM worked closely with Kevin Coperhaver, costume designer at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, to develop this creative experience.

Get inspired by the script and the story to sketch your own costume design or design a character and appropriate garb for their environment with hands-on activities.

Fun for all ages, included in general admission.

Every weekend from noon to 3 pm, local creatives will be on hand for demonstrations relating to costuming.
