Explaining the importance of drawing in the design process, this guide reveals how the initial two-dimensional drawing is a crucial building block in creating the scale model that in turn will develop into the stage set—that will transport the audience into another world. Topics covered include an introduction to the tools and equipment used by the designer; developing confidence in freehand sketching; drawing to aid the creative thought process, communicate design ideas, and and help with the construction process; scenic elements and the related terminology; and the architecture of the theater and how to draw it.
