Summer 2013 Workshops
Theatre Design Institute
The Theatre Design Institute is an outreach program that equips high school educators in the areas of design and technical theatre, inspires them to turn their production ideas into reality, and helps them build stronger arts education programs.
June 17-21, 2013
9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
George Fox University
(Optional: up to 3 graduate credits available for additional fee)
Geared toward high school teachers and staff, this course is designed to deepen your understanding of scenic design for theatre. We will examine the types and functions of scenery for live performance; explore design styles and how they apply to theatre; and experiment with conceptual approaches to stage environments.
Through a series of hands-on exercises and projects we will apply techniques and processes designed to give you the tools you need to flesh out your creative ideas. We will cover the basics of model building, drafting, perspective drawing, Photoshop and color rendering. We will identify common challenges for inexperienced designers, and walk through the design process from conceptualization to implementation.
Participants have the option to take the five-day course for two graduate-level semester credits. A third credit is also available for work related to a production at a home school or theatre. An additional fee of $100 per credit hour is required.
