This class will emphasize the creative process as it is applied to creating physical spaces, and communicating meaning discovered in theatrical literature or other script material. Students will explore the craft of scenic rendering. This will include: creating multiple point perspective drawings, 2D color renderings, and building scale models for both theatre and the camera. Various tools and materials will be explored. Readings, research, practical exercises, the viewing of live performances, and critical writing assignments will be used to enhance the student's understanding of the role of design in the theatre and media arts.
