Course Description

Mountview has offered scenic art and prop making training for over 40 years as part of our Theatre Production Arts course. Due to its popularity we have created two new programmes that offer more specialist vocational training in scenic art and prop making for theatre, film, TV and related industries such as theming and heritage.

The two-year Foundation Degree (FdA) in Scenic Art and Prop Making provides a fast-track training, and a one-year BA (Hons) top-up course allows FdA graduates the opportunity to go on to gain a BA (Hons) in Scenic Art and Prop Making. The BA (Hons) top-up is also available, and open now, to students who have completed an FdA comparable to Mountview’s FdA in Scenic Art and Prop Making, or gained 240 credits of an equivalent undergraduate qualification elsewhere. 

There is a maximum of eight places available each year with practical training running over 30 hours per week, 36 weeks per year.

Mountview produces around 20 fully supported plays and musicals in theatres across London, the UK and internationally each year giving Scenic Art and Prop Making students a vast array of learning opportunities.

The FdA programme places a strong emphasis on developing specialist skills and practical problem solving in scenic art and prop making. You’ll learn a range of skills and processes from traditional and established methods and materials to new and future-facing technologies. The course has strong links with the industry and opportunities for work-based learning. As an FdA graduate you’ll be prepared to enter the workplace at an assistant level, with a broad range of skills and knowledge that makes them highly employable and equipped to continue their professional development within the workplace. 

Scenic Art and Prop Making training covers:

• Puppetry and puppet making
• Prosthetics and special effects make-up
• Painting scenic cloths and gauzes
• Specialist paint finishes and effects
• Mould making and casting
