Tech Tuesday Ep. 6 - Savannah Draper

Jul 21, 2020

Welcome to our sixth episode of Tech Tuesday! Join host Carrie Phillips as she hands out the coveted-but-technically-nonexistent “slashie award” to Farmers Alley’s own Prop Designer slash Scenic Artist slash Stage Manager slash Production Coordinator, Savannah Draper! Savannah’s theatrical career may not be as long as some, but her color matching skills are unrivaled, and her ability to wield a glue gun is nothing to scoff at, either. You might even want to follow along with some paint and a brush as she takes us through a few of the painting techniques she uses all the time!
