Studio School Of Design Unveils Fall Classes

Studio School of Design made its debut this year and launched its first classes in June. The brainchild of Mark Stanley and Clifton Taylor, along with a diverse group of design professionals, the goal of the school is to create access to education in design for both people starting out in the industry who have not followed a traditional path, and for design professionals in need of continuing education. The summer semester proved to be such a success that new online and in-person classes have been announced for the fall. Course leaders include consultant and lighting designer Rachel Gibney, projection designer David Bengali, and lighting designer Adam Honoré.

See below for details of the new classes.

Drafting In Revit For Vectorworks Users

Revit has emerged as the standard for architects, architectural lighting designers and many other industries that hire lighting designers outside of the theater. This course will cover the basics of Revit for designers who are already versed in Vectorworks methodology and terminology, increasing your skill set so that you will be qualified to work in these related fields.

This 10 session interactive program facilitated by theater consultant Rachel Gibney of Available Light will open up your understanding of this important CAD program, building on your pre-existing knowledge of Vectorworks and CAD concepts to understand how collaborative projects and BIM tools are being used in today’s consulting, architectural lighting and themed entertainment contexts.
