School of Theater
Head of Lighting Design:
BFA & MFA Programs
Committed to both artistry and new technology, the Lighting Design Program provides professional training in the craft of lighting design for theater. It also enables students to broaden their experience with additional projects in film, video, dance and art.
The curriculum covers text analysis, graphic skills and the use of systems and equipment, including computer-based technologies. Numerous production assignments help students to refine their skills and build substantial portfolios of their work.
Below is a video of the recent lighting installation CalArts faculty member Anne Militello created at the World Financial Center’s Winter Garden and Plaza in New York City. Click here to read more about her work on this project.
