Theatre Arts 173 is a study and execution of stage lighting with emphasis on equipment, control, color, and their relationship to design. Students learn how to use artificial light sources to create an appropriate environment for a variety of entertainment media including animation, theatre and dance productions. Applying basic techniques of lighting composition, students use highlights, shadows, textures, and colors to achieve the desired effects. Lighting designs are created using virtual lighting simulations on a computer.
