TECHNICAL THEATRE AND DESIGN
Lighting I (Teens and Adults)
Students explore the significance of light in design through the review of the four basic functions of visibility, motivation, composition and mood. Students learn about the qualities and function of light through its properties: intensity, distribution, color and movement. After the basic goal of visibility is achieved, the lighting designer’s aim is to reinforce the overall dramatic impact of the production. Students begin the creative process of lighting design.
