Scenic Art Class

You have marveled at our sets – now learn how they are created. MMAS will host a scenic art class that will teach some of our secrets to painting a realistic set. The first class will be held on Saturday, August 27th from 9 AM to 1 PM.




MMAS will be offering a hands on workshop on faux painting techniques which can be used either for stage painting or for home decorating. Various painting techniques such as spattering, ragging, sponging, highlighting, dry brushing, and washing will be used to create various faux effects. These techniques will be combined to make sample boards of marble, wood graining, raised paneling, and brick. The class will be on Saturday August 27 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  You will also be able to take your completed sample boards with you for future reference. Michael Duarte will be your instructor for this class. Mike is the resident set designer and scenic artist for Dean College and has designed for numerous local theater groups including MMAS/NERC where he designed the sets for Glass Menagerie, Biloxi Blues, and 1940’s Radio Hour for which he was nominated for an EMACT award for set dressing.

Come and learn some fun painting techniques that are easy to do when you know the steps and materials to use.
