Description

Class Experience

Students will learn a variety of special fx and theatrical makeup techniques and designs, from gore makeup to old age makeup to creature makeup and even how to make prosthetics! They will benefit from meeting new, like minded students and learning from each other as well.
I am an actor, makeup artist, and director working in Atlanta, GA, and in Alabama.  I have taught kids and adults makeup for over four years, as well as creating makeup looks for film, theater, and cosplay events. I have a degree in musical theater from the University of Mobile Alabama School of the arts. I am dyslexic and ADD and find that the arts allows me to help others like myself and turn those differences into a creative superpower! When not teaching, I am creating my own makeup designs and costumes, which you can view on my Instagram page at https://www.instagram.com/leahcj_13/ , developing film and theater projects, and pursuing my love of acting and music. 
Outside of class, practice any new techniques you learned in class or keep practicing your own designs and share what you worked on over the week in the following class. 
These are basic items students can use to create most looks I will be demonstrating. If they don't have everything on the first day they participate in the club, that is ok. We will have lots of fun anyway! Any additional items will be provided in a weekly list and can be used should the student decide to participate in the Makeup Demonstration that week: Liquid Latex (16oz bottle available on Amazon for $11 or you can get a smaller size - they will need at least 4 oz) OR Elmers Glue and Flour Empty cups or bowls and stirring tools Paper Towels and makeup wipes/baby wipes on hand Eyeshadow in a variety of colors Facepaint or other colorful makeup (if you have it) Eyeliner in Black Makeup Brushes and sponges Toilet paper, tissue paper, cotton, Q-Tips Lipstick in red (or a halloween/theatrical makeup palette containing cream makeups) Vaseline Setting powder and a foundation or concealer Corn Syrup, Pancake Syrup, or Honey, Red Food Coloring, and Cocoa Powder Other materials for specific looks will be provided in the Classroom comments before each lesson and notes on alternative options or where to find what you need will be included as well.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
As we will be using liquid latex in this class, if your child has never used it before, please follow the guidelines on the bottle for patch testing it first to ensure it is safe for them to use. Some individuals have allergies to latex, so it is always best to be safe. If your child is allergic to latex, they can use Elmer's glue and flour whenever we are doing a makeup project that otherwise requires liquid latex.
