Elements of Design

The elements of design are utilized in every aspect of our lives. Learn what these basic elements are and how to tie them to scenic, lighting and costume design.

Lighting Design Outreach

Looking for assistance in your light hang and/or focus? I bring the lighting crew from the Department of Theatre and Dance and we help assist you and your students in the hang and/or focus of your current production, or basic lighting maintenance. This must be
planned months in advance.
