Traditional & Scenic Artist
Grow up, be mature, but still maintain those beautiful qualities. What I feel is important is the freedom to invent things, however ridiculous. Don't be afraid to take risks, to be creative, and try things.
No matter how much sleep I get, this course completely knocks me out. Good job I love it!
Doing what we do best. :) #art #scenicart #theatre #friends #me #central #cssd #workshop (Taken with Instagram)
Beth and I painting the gravestone floor today in the workshop. This is pretty much what my course consists of… love it!

Costumes were made by Costume Construction (the girls wearing them and others), the window made by Scenic Construction and painted by Scenic Art. You can see one of the panels I painted at the bottom. Backdrop to the window was painted by my course mate, decorations on the tree were made by Stage Management, etc.
This is a still from our 1st Year Tableau performance today. The landscape picture in the background was painted by my course mate on Scenic Art, the frame was made by Maria in Props and the costume made by three girls in Costume Construction.
19th Century Tableau Project
These are some photos I took of the final result of the project we’ve been working on since November. This has been a collaboration between Scenic Art, Scenic Construction, Props, Costume, Technical Production Management and Stage Management.
The Victorian window was made by Scenic Construction and painted by Scenic Art. The back cloth behind the window was painted by Scenic Art as well as the landscape painting on the wall. The gild frame was made by Props, along with the turkey, both Christmas puddings, the goose, the Jack-in-the-Box, various food and the 3D molding on the top of each window column. The costumes were incredible but aren’t shown here and the rest was sourced by Stage Management.
I was personally responsible for painting the three panels on the bottom of the window as well as helping to paint the window in full and age it. I also helped with the brick flooring on the second tableau.
The first setting is meant to represent a middle-class family dining room whereas the second is mean to represent Tiny Tim and his families table.
We’ll be putting on 3 minute performances in each one a Central School of Speech and Drama in Swiss Cottage, London from 3-7pm tomorrow so come along and see! :)
The Victorian window we’re currently making at Central. I painted the three bottom panels and with friends painted the base colours and glaze. Scenic Construction made it. The higher decorations were made by a girl from props.
