As promised here is a photo of the lovely 1st year associated studies group that have been working in scenic art this week, showing off their creations:
As you can see they’ve been kept busy learning some of the skills that the scenic art department use on a regular basis. They’ve sampled wood graining, texturing, brick work, spray guns, stencilling and puddling to name but a few so they have had a little taster of what we do down here in design realisation. Hopefully we have excited some of them enough to encourage them to take scenic art for a ‘minor elective’ next year, where they can spend 6 weeks in the department working on the public productions.
They look very proud of their work, and they should be; what a great example of something that can be achieved in just a few days with a new set of skills that they can take forward in their studies!
