We are offering a free IN PERSON course in design for current High School Students this summer from July 7 – 10, 2022 at the Chelsea Factory in Manhattan. Targeted to Rising Juniors and Seniors currently studying in High School, this four day course will include hands-on work with working professional lighting designers, a visit to see a New York show and tour backstage, and culminate in a public showing of the work accomplished during the workshop.
Course availability is strictly limited. Priority will be given to students studying in Title 1 Public High Schools in New York & New Jersey.

This IN-PERSON Full day event provides interested Secondary School Educators with tools for educating your students about the art and technology of lighting design. We will be talking about career paths for lighting designers, and specific actionable lesson planning for increasing your student’s capacities in lighting and preparing them for work on your own school productions and a path into college and a career. All of the activities have been prepared with NJ and NY state educational standards and coding, and participants will be given lesson plans that they can use in their own classrooms.
No prior technical or lighting experience is necessary to participate in this fun & impactful professional development workshop. This program is targeted to all teachers who may be interacting with their students in theatrical productions or theater courses.
Price: inquire for scheduling and pricing information for your school district
