Description: What is lighting design? How can light shape the way an audience experiences a piece of theatre? In this course we will learn how to approach a play from the perspective of a lighting designer and explore the role light plays in the overall composition of the visual world of theatre. Students will learn the principles of lighting design, including equipment and control, interpretation of technical drawings, drafting, color theory, cueing, and hands on lab projects. Students will sharpen their ability to "see" light in new ways, both natural and artificial and refine their own individual artistic process. We will also attend several academic and professional regional productions.
