WAAPA’s Design courses prepare students for industry employment through theoretical learning experiences paired with opportunities for practical application of skills. Working with industry directors and choreographers on WAAPA performances, the course provides skill development in live production environments, preparing graduates for transition into design-related careers within the entertainment industry. Design students undertake classes in design studio scenery and costume, technical drafting, CAD, art finishing, drawing, model making, scenic painting, wardrobe technology, props construction and history of theatre. Specialist classes are delivered in the principal studio area to extend design skills and knowledge, in addition to more challenging set and costume design roles in WAAPA’s live productions for theatre, opera, music theatre and dance performance programs.
