Holland College SOPA Theatre Makeup Classes

As a freelance makeup artist, I get to tackle a variety of tasks. No two days are ever the same! So when I was asked to teach the Stage Makeup program for the Holland College School of Performing Arts students, I welcomed the opportunity to try out my hand as a teacher for a professional group.

Since I only had 5 sessions with the group and a lot of material to cover, the classes had to be well-organized. And I was thrilled to have an assistant there to help me out Рmakeup artist, M̩lissa Hotte.

Once we got through the basics of theatre makeup, and took a ‘road trip’ to purchase necessary products for their kits, it was time to start practising (and playing!) with makeup techniques. Our character class was so much fun! Each student chose a character or look they wanted to create, and here are the results.

    Sounds like a pretty fantastic class! I laughed so much at the girl who did “grumpy cat” – so great!
