Scene Shop

At the UA Little Rock Department of Theatre Arts, we are fortunate to have a large and well-equipped scene shop where students can learn about the many different types of tools and equipment used in the creation of props and scenery. In the scene shop our students have the opportunity to learn many techniques including traditional woodworking, metalworking, and the manipulation of plastic and foam products. Additionally, we have a 3D printer, which along with 3D design software allows you to design and print props and other specialty items.

Costume Shop

The Theatre Arts Costume Shop is located on the second floor above the scene shop with windows for natural light. The shop is well equipped with six irons, including a professional iron and a steamer, two 4X8 cutting tables, a 3×6 ironing table, five work tables that hold 14 sewing machines, and two sergers, with enough room for every student to have a workstation. We have a separate laundry/dye and airbrush painting room and a wall of fabric storage.  Costume shop manager, Donald Bolinger has plenty of opportunities to teach various skills in costume construction, draping, pattern making, craftwork, millinery work, wig styling, fabric painting, dying, and cobblery.
