Stimulate students to create costumes for a theater play or performance, using discarded or recycled material, adapting it to the dramatic needs of the show.



Used material like paper bags, potato bags, paint, gouache, PET bottles, old x-ray images, newspaper, etc.



1. Read a short story or play and discuss it with the participants

2. Participants draw ideas of the costumes they would like to create based on the story or play

3. Participants use the materials they gathered to create their costume, using simple techniques to bring the materials together (tape, knots, staples, glue, etc)
