Design and Theatre [DRAM 241]
Design and Theatre
This course offers an introduction to set and costume design. Class time will be used for lecture, group discussion, and studio work. The course is structured around a series of practical design “problem sets” which highlight different skills and perspectives needed by theatre designers and those who think critically about design. Core questions to be considered: How do visual elements communicate? How can these visual elements be employed in support of a core understanding of the play?
