Flat Rock Playhouse: Mini-Mester Class: Theatrical Design Basics

( Tue., Apr. 13, 2021 - Tue., May. 4, 2021 )

Performed by Instructor CJ Barnwell

Online, , , NC


Dive into the world of theatrical design in this four-week introductory course for teens led by CJ Barnwell, the Resident Lighting and Visual Media Designer at Flat Rock Playhouse. Bring design principles to life by studying real-world productions, engage with your peers in lively class discussions, and try your hand at design with a weekly series of artistic prompts (no previous art or design experience required). Whether you are interested in lights, sound, sets, or costumes, this class will give you the confidence, tools, and language to follow your artistic impulses and convey your creative ideas.

This class meets on Tuesdays via Zoom from 5-6 PM, April 13 - May 4. Grades 6-12.


A $25 deposit is required to secure the student’s spot in the class. The full payment must be completed by April 26.
