Theatre Oxford, in cooperation with the UM Theatre Arts Department, kicks off its new Workshop Series on July 17th from 9:30 to 12:30 at Meek Auditorium on the UM campus. SCENE PAINTING MADE EASY will offer easy techniques for creating brick, marble and wood grain effects with paint. This is a great opportunity for people who are interested in creating sets or who would like to be more creative in their decorating pursuits. The class will be taught by Felipe Macias, Professor of Theatre at Eastern New Mexico University. Mr. Macias has over 200 design credits and most recently designed the sets for Oxford Shakespeare Festival’s Royal Season. The workshop is open to anyone over the age of 13. Enrollment fee is $30.00; scholarships available for UM Theatre majors. Visit www.theatreoxford.org or go by The Powerhouse in Oxford for an application.
