ATH 113 - Introduction to Stage Design

Course Units: 1
(Fall; Mannion) This studio course introduces the work and practices of the theatrical scenic designer. Through studying the historical traditions and styles of theatre as well as the innovative practices of contemporary designers students will read and interpret several plays and create original designs in sketches, renderings and scale models. Projects and exercises will emphasize “design ideas” about space, place, pictorial representation and the expressive use of materials. There will be on-going, in-class studio exercises that deal with craft practices and skill acquisition - using the architects’ scale, drawing techniques, handling knives, joining board with adhesives, watercolor painting, textures with acrylic mediums, etc. Each project presentation will be accompanied by a paper describing the research and design process. CC: HUM Note: Satisfies design requirement for Theatre Majors and Minors.
