The Stage Scholarship - Scenic Art and Prop Making Foundation Degree

Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts is collaborating with The Stage to provide a full scholarship for its FdA Scenic Art and Prop Making course. To the chosen student, this two-year foundation degree course is worth £18,720. Mountview may have an enviable reputation for drama and musical theatre training, but the academy has been providing training in scenic art and prop making for 40 years on its Theatre Production Arts course.

The course, validated by the University of East Anglia, places an emphasis on developing specialist skills and practical problem-solving in scenic art and prop making. You’ll learn a range of skills including puppet making, scenic painting, fantasy costume construction and even upholstery. Mountview produces 20 fully supported plays and musicals a year and the students will be working on these productions, alongside professional set designers and practitioners. Upon graduation, career opportunities don’t lie only in theatre, as there is demand for skilled designers and makers in heritage and culture, theme parks, film and television.
