Class experience

This class is taught in English.
The goal of the class is to learn about Greek mythology through creative expression while also learning SFX makeup skills.
The teacher has a PhD in theatre, having taken several stage makeup courses and a makeup certification program as part of her studies, and she runs fantasy day camps as part of her small business The Imaginorium. She also focused in ancient Greek theatre as part of her studies because Greek mythology has fascinated her since middle school. Her recently completed fantasy novel includes mythological characters, and she teaches several classes based on Rick Riordan's "Percy Jackson" series. She's excited about exploring mythology in a new way!

Assessments Offered
Students will receive positive verbal feedback about their work. If they choose not to show their work or not to appear on camera (after verification), that's okay, too.
Grades Offered
In general, you will always need:
- A makeup mirror
- Makeup wipes (get the most gentle kind)
- Eyeshadow in lots of colors (I like the James Charles palette - the mini is just as good as the full size. It has the same colors for a lot less). 
- Eye primer (there are many. No need to get an expensive one. Concealer also works for this)
- Water-based Facepaint - I like the Mehron multi-colored palettes. Basic gives the most important colors. Basic + Pastel gives everything you need. I've also heard this is a good economical option:
- Foundation in your own skin color. Honestly, I use Maybelline. 
- Makeup brushes - a liner brush, powder brush, and foundation brush are the most useful. (you can use cotton swabs, paintbrushes, and your fingers if you don't have brushes, though)

SFX supplies:
- Finishing spray - which we don't just use for finishing - it's used for SFX (like this:
- Scarwax - you can make your own by mixing one part vaseline to three parts flour until it feels like sticky cookie dough. Keep refrigerated in a plastic bag.
- School glue - white or clear
- Tissue
- Glitter in a variety of colors
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Mythology includes violence and sexuality inherent in the stories, though I will be careful to keep these stories as age-appropriate as possible while staying true to the myths themselves. I do not like to change the myths (Zeus was unfaithful to his wife, for example. A lot. There's no getting around that.). But we don't need to go into details that are inappropriate for young students. The myths will be presented from a cultural, not religious, perspective. '

Kids with sensitive skin should be careful about makeup content. Kids should only use makeup approved for use on skin and should check for makeup allergies. I wrote the following in response to a question about brands for makeup for sensitive skin:
Some of my favorite brands claim to be good for sensitive skin in general. Urban Decay is one of my go to brands, and it claims to be hypoallergenic. But that doesn't mean it would work for everyone (nothing does). And different colors are more abrasive than others. Burts Bees and MAC are also really good.  I found this article when I was looking for some more info to answer your question:  For foundation and my makeup wipes, honestly, Neutrogena does a really good job. It's inexpensive and drugstore brand, but it has worked better than a lot of the more expensive brands.
