About Whitney

Hello! Welcome to my profile!

I am ready to help you meet your future knowledge goals. I work great with other people and am highly capable of figuring out how you will best learn. Workshops in education with Kennedy Center teachers have been helpful in me determining how to relate to students, but generally I'm just an individual that easily befriends and understands people.

I have worked four years as a cutter, draper, first hand, and designer in the University of Arkansas costume shop. I have also worked with Theatre Squared as an assistant designer and seamstress.

I have a Bachelor of Art in Theatre from the University of Arkansas. I have studied several acting techniques including Stanislavsky, Meisner, Viewpoints, Checkov and Suzuki.

I look forward to working with you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Sewing

I have studied theatrical costume construction and design in the University of Arkansas costume shop for four years.

I have taken classes in pattern drafting, draping, stitching, and construction of a wide range of garments from period to modern to abstract.

I am currently working as a costume designer for Quest theatre in Chicago on their upcoming production of Tomato Queen.

Theatre

I have been involved in theatre since I was in grade school. It is my ultimate passion. Following that passion has lead me to achieve a BA in theatre from the University of Arkansas, receive many accolades for my performance and design, as well as my decision to move to Chicago.
I have received training in techniques such as Stanislavsky, Meisner, Chekhov, Shakespeare and Viewpoints. As well as studied aspects of theatre such as design, history, theory, construction, backstage and directing.
