About the Production Arts Course

Our production arts course for ages 14–18, is perfect for those who enjoy providing creative solutions, working as a team and bringing ideas to life. 
 
The course will explore the many different creative positions within production arts and the process involved within each of these —from brainstorming ideas to thematic research, mood-boarding, visualising and pitching the concept. 
 
There are so many roles within production arts to learn about, which include: producer; creative director; live-action director; set, costume, sound, lighting and video designer; technician; set builder; prop maker; stage and production manager, to name a few. With the expertise of Steve Boyd, you will discover how each area of responsibility contributes to putting on a show. 
 
Skills required for a career in production arts include heaps of creativity, good organisation and communication skills, time management and enjoyment of teamwork.  
 
Whether you simply want to spend a couple of hours immersing yourself in a purely creative environment, while learning new skills and some clever show-business hacks, or are considering a backstage career in the creative industries, you can be sure to unleash your creativity and have lots of fun, whilst learning from top practitioners and industry professionals.

Production arts students will come together with drama and music students to create innovative performances. These will be staged at the centre or other arts venues. Visits from Guildhall School production arts students and tutors will give students the opportunity to further develop their skills and ask any questions they might have. 

Please note, the production arts course will start later on in the year. If you are interested in the production arts course, please let us know via the application form. We will get in touch with you as soon as this is available to book.
