Van Gogh Class have been busy over the last half term being set designers. We took part in the Royal Opera House Design and Make Challenge, designing a set for the ballet, Romeo and Juliet. It was a brilliant process where the children had to research, plan and design their set before making a 3D model. Every child made their own set, and they were all different and interesting. They had to think about scale and leaving enough room for the dancers to get on and off the stage and to be able to dance around the set.
Mahdi created a set based on the market scene in Romeo and Juliet, and included elements of our nearby Chrisp Street market to make it more contemporary. In the video below he describes the design process of being a set designer.
