This IN-PERSON full-day, professional development workshop will provide 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.

Lunch is included as a part of the course fee.

“Lighting for Televised Live Events” will explore the techniques, science and art of designing lighting for live events and entertainment that otherwise would be a standard presentation—usually with an audience in attendance—except for the presence of television cameras that will capture the performance for broadcast on a TV or cable network, streaming on the internet, or perhaps to improve the overall quality of live camera shots on IMAG video screens. Those cameras change the game.

As with ALL Studio School of Design ONLINE Courses, each session will be videotaped and shared with participants for a limited time in case you can not attend a specific session. 

Studio School Courses are open to participants from around the world. 

This course will meet for 5 sessions on Saturdays from February 19 – March 19, from 12pm – 3pm EST UTC -5 (EDT)

This course is designed for, but not limited to, working theatrical lighting designers looking for more understanding of lighting live events for the camera.
