On Saturday April 28th and Sunday April 29th, 2012, Columbia Arts is hosting a theater lighting workshop taught by a professional lighting designer.
Open to all, attendees will get theoretical and hands on instruction in many aspects of theater lighting.
The workshop will start with visual perception and composition then move into color vision. Hands on time in the theater at Columbia Center for the Arts will look at different types of light sources and explore color mixing and color rendering.
Sunday will begin a general walk through of the design process and its tools (color keys, magic sheets, etc.), then cover strategies for specific design problems including specific staging layouts. We will look at lighting angles in the theater and analyze stage pictures, diagramming how they were created.
The workshop will be led by Tad Shannon, an Assistant Professor at West Oregon University. Tad is an award winning professional lighting designer. He has been the resident designer with Portland’s Do Jump Movement Theatre since 1992, designing the lighting and rigging for national tours in 2000, 2001 and 2007. He has designed lights for a wide variety of regional dance and theatre companies including many productions as the resident designer for Portland’s New Rose Theatre and San Francisco’s Sweet Can Productions. He has designed for Rainbow Dance Theatre since 2002.
Costs are $25, Class will run from 9 to 4 with an hour break for lunch. Continuing education credit may be available.
