Course Description

This one-week course is designed for artists who have either finished our introductory scenic painting class or painters who would like to use their skills to GO BIG. It is ideal for those seeking careers in theatrical painting.

The methods, shortcuts and secrets used by the professional scenic artist, spanning hundreds of years, are explained, giving you the opportunity to execute and take away your own piece of theatrical art.

Learn and expand on the following skills in this hands-on intensive course:

  • Start with a designer’s vision and work toward a finished set piece;
  • Solve problems typical with materials, tools and paints;
  • Build an image in stages on a large scale in the continental style; and
  • Build confidence with tools found only in a scene painting shop.

Note: Students will be required to bend, squat, stand for long periods at a time, and sit on the floor. Physical dexterity is required.

Registration fee includes materials.

Classes run Monday to Friday, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
