Introduction to Scene Design is a discussion and project-based course which studies the skills, techniques, communication and collaboration, thought process, and presentation that goes into designing scenery for the stage at an introductory level. The course will examine the work of prominent scenic designers and their relevant works as well as looking at other types of careers that a scenic design background can nurture. Students will be challenged to conceptualize, develop, and curate the "world of the play" through their own thoughtful analysis and interpretation of the script. Research, rendering, drafting, model building, storyboarding, and presentation skills will be explored through the various projects. (Offered every other year.)
