San Marcos High School Stagecraft Class Designs Sets for Goleta Elks Lodge
Elk committee chairman Tony Browning contacted San Marcos Theatre Arts teacher David Holmes and asked if his crew class would be interested in working with the Elks on creating an old west facade. Over the past month Mr. Holmes’ Stagecraft students researched, designed and painted four different Old West storefronts including a saloon, bank, pet supply and a barber shop. It was a great lesson on how to use a document camera, a projector and various painting techniques to achieve the final results. Seniors Nathalie Mitchell and Sara Alarid were the lead designers and artists who were assisted by Mr. Holmes, Robert Hagedorn III, Saul Sandoval and the rest of the crew to produce the panels scheduled to be used at the Elks Old West Fandango November 12.
