Class Spotlight: Makeup Design

A dynamic immersion into the world of makeup design. Makeup is an essential final step for any actor, whether they are on stage or in film and television, to complete a character’s look. From old age and fantasy to cuts and bruises, students will learn some of the fundamental techniques of creating characters through makeup design. Families will need to purchase their own supplies for the class.
