Applied Scenography: From Idea to the Stage|
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
In this course, students will develop a specific design for the stage by doing close reading and analysis of the text for their specific projects. Students will be guided through each step of these processes in a formal approach: concept development, visual research, renderings or drawings, model-making, and/or drafting.
The course will have a special emphasis on the collaborative process and on the designer's role to fulfill the needs for the actual construction of their projects. Students will create and design set, media, or costumes for their projects, integrating the notions of design principles and performance elements.

Design Concept (written); work in progress submission drafting, renderings and/or model; final submission; drafting, renderigs and model; realized design.
|Additional Requirements and/or Comments: |
POI during drop add: Students need to schedule a meeting with the professor and have already been selected to be part of a capstone and/or thesis production team. It is expected that students would have taken a course in the design area for which they are enrolling in the course (see prerequisites). In the case that the thesis or capstone project is scheduled in a non-theatrical venue, the prerequisite can be overridden. Instead, the student will need to present a portfolio of artistic work in the POI meeting with the professor.
