This week we had a professional scenic artist visit us. She came to conduct a week dedicated to teaching us the basics of her profession. She talked us through what she did and showed us previous projects that she had completed. It was interesting to be told the exact tasks that fall underneath the job title ‘scenic artist’.
We were presented with a small model box that consisted of a large brick wall and two large painted canvases on a similar scale. This was to be what we would have to construct over the course of the week. Each person on the course would finish the week with a small section of the brick wall and a section of one of the canvases painted accurately.
