Setting the Stage: Scene Painting Video Series.
This series of three twenty-five to thirty-five minute videotapes illustrates steps one can use to add dimension and scenery to stage settings. They are available individually or as a set of three and are useful at the secondary level of instruction. Preparing the Surface covers the very important first steps of painting scenery - flame treating the fabric, priming the surface, applying a base coat and transferring drawings onto the panels for painting. Painting Exteriors covers the most common exterior elements such as how to illustrate bricks, stone, woodwork, foliage and landscape. Painting Exteriors includes the creation of elements commonly found in interior sets - wood grain, marble and wallpaper. Demonstrations of techniques using natural sea sponges, rags and even newspaper add to the interest of this tape. This series is especially useful for theater arts classes or art programs that integrate their curricula with theater arts programs.
