Hi! This is my first post for my Stagecraft & Design Blog.
In the first class of this course, we were given some brief descriptions (a happy shape/ a loud shape/etc) that we needed to draw. Below is my result =) The purpose of this activity was to stimulate our creativity and out-of-the-box thinking, so that we can apply it when we have to think of what a prop should look like based on the play’s setting and script.
We were also reminded of the following elements that create art:
Texture – Physical (can feel something) – Flat (visual effect)
Shape – 2D
Form – 3D
Color – Primary, secondary, complimentary, mood
Space – Positive and negative
Value – More realistic – 3D
Line – Viewer’s focus – Leads people’s eyes
