Intro to Prop and Costume Painting with Nicole Deibert

December 4 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm MST

| $60


Painting is a true art form. Understanding this art form takes years of training, studying and practice. Nicole, the Head of Scenic Paint at the Citadel Theatre, has the expertise and is very excited to share her knowledge with you. The skill of scenic painting can be used to paint sets, props, fabric or costumes and more! It is a practice that transforms an object with paint to tell a completely different story. This workshop is for any craftsperson at any skill level. We have designed this workshop for painters, costumers, cosplayers, LARP, prop builders, artists and anyone who loves to paint.

Nicole has been a Scenic Artist since 1997. Nicole studied Theatre Production at Grant MacEwan College (1994) and has also done the work study program at the Banff Centre (2001).

This hands-on workshop will cover:

  • Discussing product reference: where to find the best materials for your project including: premiers, seals, adhesives, tools and different paints
  • Nicole will bring and share a few examples of her work
  • Discuss color theory and why it is important for scenic painting
  • Learn and practice painting thermoplastics, leather, plastics and wood
  • Explore different brush stroke techniques
  • Practice using gold leaf
  • Learn how to paint fabric with stencils
  • There will be a Q&A portion to the end of the workshop if you have personal projects you’d like to bring in and get advice on

All skill levels are welcome. Theatre Garage will provide all materials needed. There is a student kit provided including a painting reference guide hand-out, wooden piece to paint, 2 gesso brushes, sponge, EVA sample and fabric sample.
