Zinhle Kolle has recently submitted her final thesis for her degree in Entertainment Technology. The topic was on Scenic Painting Techniques on Recycled Theatre Sets. She’s had a rough ride … at the end of last year when submitting her thesis (with a similar topic on painting large murals), she was told to redo the whole year with a focus on Recycled Set Construction. This November, a week before the deadline, it was changed once more to the above topic. These are some of the challenges facing this bright and talented student. Zinhle has just found out that she has passed her final year, so she can now move on to greener painting pastures. This year she successfully painted a backdrop of Joburg’s skyline for Play Africa’s children’s theatre.
