Second Volume of Scenic Design Compendium Released!

Tammy Honesty Co-Editor, with Gion DeFrancesco

After more than two years in development, the second volume of Projects for Teaching Scene Design: A Compendium is on sale! The first 50 copies sold out in the bookstore in Salt Lake City. If you were not one of the lucky few to get your copy, don’t despair! We will be printing more soon. They will be available on the USITT website bookstore. A digital edition also is in the works.

The second volume features over 30 new projects for teaching scene design, research, model-making, and collaboration. Submissions were selected based on clear outcomes or learning objectives, uniqueness, or a new twist on an old favorite.

There are a few old favorites from the first volume that have had a slight makeover. It’s interesting how those projects from the first volume have grown and morphed over the years to meet the changing needs of students. There also are submissions that build on projects from the first volume to create more complicated assignments.

The editors thank all the contributors, the USITT National Office staff, and the Scene Design & Technology leadership, as well as its members, for their help to bring the second volume to print.
