Intern from Royal Academy of Dramatic Art Completes Work-Study with Scenic Art Studios
Meet Felix Chesher, an exchange student from London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) who traveled to Scenic Art Studios for a 6-week work-study placement, part of his 2nd-year curriculum. He is one of many students that have walked through our doors over the years.
“I’m constantly surrounded by amazing companies, theaters, and creatives since moving to London, and I've studied around the corner from the West End. My reason for doing my placement in New York was because I didn’t know when the next opportunity would come up where I’d have the time to learn for 6 weeks abroad.
My first Google search must’ve been “Best Scenic Design on Broadway,” which led me to find out who painted the sets... it didn’t take long before Scenic Art Studios showed up. I hadn’t realized that a lot of shows I had seen on the West End had also been painted at Scenic Art Studios, and when I got a response saying they were interested in having me intern, I was very excited.
I think that it’s imported to push yourself, especially in the arts. I ended up being taught by and working alongside some of the best scenics in the game.”
