    Get to know the ins and outs of lighting design without flipping a switch. Join The Arsonists lighting designer and Woolly Mammoth company member Colin K. Bills for an illuminating workshop where we'll introduce the art and science of light through exercises involving string, movement, and tracing shadow. Together we will address critical lighting questions for key scenes in The Arsonists, and our learnings will become part of the design process. Come play, learn, and make an impact. No previous experience necessary!
