George Fox University
(1-3 graduate credits available for additional fee of $100 per credit)
Geared toward high school teachers and staff, this course is designed to develop your skills in scenic design for theatre. We will cover the basics of model building, drafting, perspective drawing, Photoshop and color rendering. Through a series of hands-on exercises and projects you will build the tools you need to flesh out your creative ideas.
We will examine the various types and functions of scenery, explore design styles, and experiment with conceptual approaches to stage environments. We will identify common challenges for new designers and explore the design process from the first read to opening night. Throughout the course we will explore ways to adapt professional practices to the unique challenges that face educational theatre artists, specifically the limits of time, money, and working with volunteers.
Participants have the option to earn 1-2 graduate level semester credits for the workshop. A third credit is also available for work related to a production at a home school or theatre.
