Description

Develop your skill as a painter in this specialty class! Scenic painting is the practice of using color and texture to transform objects and set pieces in order to increase the immersion of theater. This course is for anyone who loves the magic of theater and its ability to transport the audience to another world. Aspiring artists will have the opportunity to refine their creative process and techniques to better render landscapes and textures.
Even students who do not consider themselves to be artists will find a place for themself in this class, as they will learn how to break down artistic principles into basic elements and approach art-making from a mathematical perspective! The practice of scenic painting is a long tradition with a powerful effect on the stage, and you too can learn this ability!
