A. Teaching Philosophy

      Mr. Elliott’s teaching goal is to give students a well rounded look at the profession and its many

      different aspects and manifestations in order for the students themselves to discover what appeals to

      them and where they fit within the field. Providing both encouragement and challenges, Mr. Elliott

      attempts to progressively build up the skills of students to their maximum potential by creating a safe

      open learning and sharing environment. Mr. Elliott also values an educator’s active role, both in the
       academic and professional community; these experiences can impart volumes of irreplaceable

       experience waiting to be passed on to both students and peers.

B. Courses taught by Mr. Elliott

       THAR 532 Advanced Costume Design (Teacher’s Aide) – Winter, 2006

       Course is focused on costume design, rendering techniques, and collaboration with set designers and

       directors. Mr. Elliott assists with the drawing and rendering technique labs. Holly Cole is teacher of

       in each shop. The costume rotation consists of teaching hand-sewing, machine-sewing, and basic

       construction and finishing techniques. Daniel Denhart is teacher of record.



       THAR 636D Costume Period Patterning (Teacher’s Aide)—Fall, 2004

       Course is an introduction to draping and patterning period specific clothing. Mr. Elliott assisted with

       section of the lab and also guest lectured on the execution of a design. Michael Lincoln is the teacher of

       record.
C. Additional teaching by Mr. Elliott

        During Mr. Elliott’s employment in costume studios (both professional and academic) he has given

        instruction of stitching, construction, draping and craft techniques on a hands-on learning basis.

        Thought not a formal classroom, this setting is where Mr. Elliott has done a majority of both his

        teaching and learning.
