Part of the Drama Two Curriculum


Created by Matt Webster

In this unit, students will explore and experiment with the basic building blocks of design: Line, Shape, and Color. Once students have a solid foundation of those concepts, they will move on to stage properties and scenic flats as additional building blocks of design. They will then apply their knowledge and skills to a series of assignments, so they can demonstrate their design knowledge and creativity.

The overview lays out the objectives, description, and lessons for the unit, including pre-knowledge requirements and review.
