I use this worksheet  to help my students learn how to add dimensions between lighting units on a sample light plot. Adding dimensions while drafting a light plot saves an immense amount of time and during the lighting crew calls when the lights are being found in the theatre.

 

I've created a short totorial on making rough-sketched collection of 2 point perspective boxes. This was for my drafting and draing for theatre class at CSU.

Using 1 point perspective to draw a desk. We start with a single 1 point box and then expand to make a desk.

Here I show how to shade our 2 point perspective front view sketch. These are basic sketching skills that will lead to creating front veiw renderings. Having sketches like these go a long way to help communicate with the director and the rest of the creative team during the pre-production process.

Shading our 2 point perspective front view of a basic set design. Adding more drama through darker shading. Creating a black and white front view rendering that a set designer, and/or a lighting designer would use to communicate with others what they planned on placing on stage for a production.

Drawing a basic room on stage in perspective.

A tutorial showing how to create a basic ground plan of a simple set in Vectorworks. We then explore working planes that allow us to print each wall from its "front" view. These will then become the actual white model walls.
The tutorial is shown at a faster speed and sounds like it.
See part two for the paper version.
