Scenic Art

Develop your artistic skills and learn to interpret set designs for all areas of the entertainment industry - theatre, video, television and film. Students on this course will collaborate with set designers and art directors, and gain experience of working independently or as part of a team. Students will gain experience of working in a wide range of materials, surfaces, textures and effects, enabling them to interpret designs to the level of finish expected by contemporary audiences. They will develop skills in research, analysis and interpretation, and a high level of technical competence in drawing, painting, colour theories and working on both large and small scale elements. Techniques such as marbling, wood graining, lettering, spray gun and texturing will be taught, and students will gain a good understanding of art history, period styles and architecture. There is the opportunity to develop comprehensive skills as part of a team by delivering realised public productions, and to take on increased levels of responsibility as the course progresses. This course leads to the qualification of BA (Hons) Theatre Practice.
