This two-session IN-PERSON, professional development workshop will provide Secondary School Educators with tools for teaching students about the art and technology of lighting design. We will cover career paths for lighting designers and experiential lesson planning to increase your learner’s capacities in lighting and prepare them both for work on your school’s productions and a path into college and 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.
Feedback from prior HS Professional Development Workshops from Studio School of Design:
Wow. That was an amazing experience at the lighting workshop. Made great connections, got awesome ideas, and was super inspired. -Helio, HS teacher, Queens
I loved the subject and the execution of it. [SSD] gave great lessons that were really transportable to the classroom. I can see myself really enhancing my unit on Lighting with this material and though this experience. –Peter, HS teacher, Bronx
I enjoyed this group and am actively recruiting students to be part of their summer program. I think we discussed this at one time – but I am a big believer in this this is a great opportunity for many students (as an entry point) as well as those who love ‘design’ – and of course a great and fun way to look at storytelling. Thank you! -Sean, HS Teacher, Manhattan
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.

This full day IN-PERSON summit will be bringing together College and Graduate level Lighting Educators to share pedagogy, challenges, and successes as we emerge from the global pandemic. This event usually takes place during the Hemsley Portfolio Review Weekend in March in New York City.
