Prop Building – Session 9
What makes a movie set in a haunted house look spooky or a play set in a log cabin look rustic and cozy? Props! Crafters will discover the different types of props and why each is important to creating the world of the play, TV show, or movie and the role of the props designer and how they design and create an aesthetic for a production. Using household and recycled materials, they will then act as the props designer for their own production and research, sketch and design, and build their own pieces.
Time: 1PM – 4PM
