Fundamentals of Lighting Design

For Ages 14 to Adult


This course explores the artistry of lighting design for the stage. Participants will gain overall knowledge by working hands on with stage equipment, while learning how and where to apply elements in a design project. Students will learn about lighting history and safety, types of fixtures, as well as technical design using color, intensity and focus. Students will observe the functions and responsibility of a lighting designer prior to and during tech week for a production. Students will work together, spending the majority of their time working on stage in the Grand Hall.
