This 6-week class will focus on the fundamentals of Special Effects Makeup design and application. Each class session will have a new topic and feature a demonstration as well as one on one guidance by the instructor in applying the makeup and effects to the students and their classmates. There will also be outside class video tutorials from time to time that students may utilize to practice at home, which can save time for more hands-on application during the two-hour class sessions. The classes will build upon the principals learned in previous classes so attendance of every class is strongly encouraged. The second session of these classes will continue to build upon the lessons learned in the first session for more advanced students who wish to continue learning and growing.
