production & sfx makeup

This course is the foundation of Theatrical Make Up.  Being able to make someone look decades younger or older than they are, creating horror, glamour, creatures and characters are just some of the skills that this course will enable you to develop.  Without a strong Make Up Department, performance would not have that sparkle and this is the course that makes that happen.
