Independent Makeup Artist Classes in Philadelphia

A Philadelphia school, makeup artist classes are teaching students about the makeup and special effects used in theatrical productions.

The Philadelphia Academy for Make-Up and Special Effects uses the Atelier Method from early European culture to teach students about the discipline.

The makeup classes at the academy are held in a private art studio, but can also be booked in advance to take place at another location. The classes are also available as part of a party agenda, the academy’s website advertises. And although not a formal, accredited cosmetology institution, such classes can offer insight into the field of cosmetology and spark interest among young people who may be just discovering their own potential and future plans.

In a report by Nicole Contosta of the Weekly Press, academy operator Carolyn Withers-Diamond said that the classes focus on the parallels between the 15th to 19th century European arts and makeup artistry techniques to enhance the students’ learning at the school. The commonalities are most present in the colors and composition of the paints and makeup applications used at the time. “Both use the same pallets,” she said.

The makeup classes are taught by certified makeup artists, well-qualified in their field. Classes offered at the academy cover a wide array of coursework to meet the needs of beginners as well as expert makeup artists who wish to learn new techniques or tap into the historical arts of makeup. Class titles include The Fundamentals of Makeup, which not an accredited course.

The academy also teaches a series of classes about Makeup for Television and Film that includes series components such as special effects, bridal makeup, brows and lashes, makeup 101, and a class for actors and actresses learning about how to work with makeup artists on set.  Makeup classes on special topics such as physical esteem, domestic violence recovery, and teenage beauty classes are also available.
