Storytelling with Light

Storytelling with Light is an  all-day workshop in lighting design for kids 10-15. In this workshop, students learn how to tell stories with light through color, intensity, pattern, angle and duration.  Kids explore how theatrical lighting operates through hanging, circuiting, focusing, designing and cueing lights. They use their new knowledge and skills to tell stories based on a folktale, fairy tales and Harry Potter. Students finish the workshop by making a gobo/pattern that they can use at home in a flashlight or make a large one for their lamp.
