This course will focus on the historical, technical, and practical application of makeup. Students will learn the general history of makeup and then specifically the history of makeup in performance. We will review historical examples such as Rococo France all the way to modern examples such as the TV show Euphoria. Students will learn makeup related hygiene, learn about makeup products, how products are used, lingo in the field, and tricks/techniques. Students will go through the process of actually applying makeup on themselves and fellow students. Students will practice recreating historical looks, recreating looks they have seen in media, and making their own looks from scratch. The goal for the class is for students to be able to not only apply makeup to themselves, but go on to have the basic training to be able to work in makeup in theater, TV, movies etc or go on to apply to beauty school.
The learning for this class will be entirely in-class and there will be no homework. The technical side of the course will be learned via slides, lecturing, and class discussion. We also have a practical application focus of the course which will be hands-on. Students will be given free time to brainstorm ideas, consult with each other/the teacher, and experiment with products. Collaboration with fellow students will play a large part in this course. Application of makeup can be done on themselves, fellow students, or on paper drawings.
Students will be given 3 multiple choice, untimed, open-note technical quizzes over the entire semester. There are no exams or long papers. Students will have 3 short, untimed, open-note practical writeups per semester. Students will be provided with time in class to take quizzes and do practical write-ups.
Participation (practical write-ups) is 30% of a student's grade while in class technical quizzes is worth 10% of a student's grade. Students are expected to attend class, thus attendance is worth 60% of a student's grade. Two unexcused absences will lead toward a no pass in the course.
Classes will be on Tuesday and Thursday from 4-6pm.
No day(s) left until application deadline!
