For Thespian Scenic Designers
I've been researching a bit (to put together a basic power point presentation) and came across this, which might be useful.
There's great stuff on the scenography website, including a bit on MODEL MAKING TECHNIQUES, a glossary of lines used for technical drawing, and a link to their blog. It comes from Great Britain, so also has articles about what's happening in Europe.
Some famous scenic designers include:
Edward Gordon Craig
There is also an interesting read on architects moving into theatrical stage design from the Washington Post.
For a collection of links--that take you to all types of topics on designing for theatre, see this artslynx site!
And finally, for some basic information on scenic design for "children's theatre" (as opposed to theatre for adults), this article has some tips.
