Scenic Artist and Scenic Carpenter Practicum Programs

Overview: Scenic Artist Practicum
Under the direction and mentorship of Banff Centre’s head scenic artist, practicum participants will learn classic and modern scenic art ideas, processes, tools, and techniques. 

Participants will interpret designer information and translate it into high quality finished surfaces as required for each production, in communication and collaboration with other Banff Centre departments. 

The techniques, styles, materials, and finishes explored will vary due to the nature of the designs. Practicums will also be responsible in part for the organization and maintenance of the paint department’s tools, materials, and spaces (office, workshop, and studio). 

Overview: Scenic Carpenter Practicum
For three months, participants will work with Banff Centre’s Scenic Carpentry team on all Banff Centre productions, co-commissions, presentations, external commissions, conferences, and outreach programs.

Responsibilities include interpreting and generating technical information from drafting, material handling, safe operation and maintenance of Scenic Shop equipment, implementing a build plan, participation in the efficient construction of stage scenery, as well as loading productions in and out. 

Participants will have an opportunity to learn and use a wide variety of building techniques as well as wood and metal tools in our large and fully outfitted shop.
