Design I: Explorations in Theatre Design
An introductory exploration of the role of design in the theatrical process. The class will focus on interpreting theatrical works through visual research, storytelling, and communication, as well as the initial tools used in each area of design to create and explain these stories. Students will be given hands on experience in all areas of design and will be given the tools needed to choose an area of focus for a final project in Scenic, Costume, or Lighting Design. At the end of the semester they wil complete a basic design packet and portfolio in their area of choice.
