Introduction to Lighting Design

IP: Design (Lighting)

Suitable for students commencing their HSC in Term Four 2022, embarking on their HSC Drama Individual Project: Design (Lighting).

Designer Kelsey Lee (A Room of One’s Own, Skyduck – 25A) will unpack the theory and practice of designing lighting for a theatre. Students will learn key ideas about vision, colour, technical choice and plotting.

This design workshop includes practical activities in design and structure, giving students the opportunity to work with an industry expert to shape ideas. During the workshop students will explore the:

  • principles of design
  • strategies for creating a lighting concept
  • how to capture the tone and enhance the story through lighting,
  • approaches to lighting states, mood and style,
  • tips and tricks for technical terminology.

This workshop is intended to help you navigate promotional materials and designing programs through a practical exploration of marketing and branding tools, guided by a Belvoir artist. Artists delivering this workshop will not be providing guidance on specifics of the HSC requirement. For information on your practical exam you should consult your teacher.
