How Outschool Works
Don't see a time that works for you?
Four thousand years ago, the ancient Egyptians invented stylized makeup. Women, men - and children - wore makeup (especially on their eyes) in ancient Egypt and they looked awesome. And so will you will after you finish this class! The class is divided in to four parts (providing everyone has time to complete their makeup) 1. Makeup: You'll learn little-known facts about ancient Egypt eye and lip makeup, which was invented by the ancient Egyptians over 4000 years ago! I'll show a short...
This class is mainly for fun, but learners will also learn what kind of makeup men and women wore and how it was made. Learners will also see photos of paintings of the kinds of vessels (cups, bowls) and various tools the ancient Egyptians used for storing and applying makeup. We will also discuss jewelry, clothes (dressing up for parties) and hair (wigs).
I hold a Certificate of Museum Studies from Harvard University and a Diploma in Egyptology from Oxford College in England. As a certified school substitute, I make the day more enjoyable - if it works out - by bringing an ancient Egyptian object into the classroom, whether I'm teaching language arts, social studies, science, consumer economics, art or even Native American studies. I've been captivated by ancient Egypt since I was 10 years old. And I feel it's my destiny to share my enthusiasm for and expertise on this beautiful and brilliant 5000-year-old civilization with all of you. I think you'll agree that THE EGYPTIAN ROOM is an attractive, fun and inspiring place to learn. And. please, if you like, call me Ms. SENNUWY--my chosen ancient Egyptian name.
There is no homework except to gather the items needed to put on makeup. I will send students a list beforehand.
Before the class, please get hold of the following items if you can, including: √ A good place, such as a kitchen table, where you can get messy. √A bright light to put in front of the face. A lighted makeup mirror is ideal. √ Optional--A long or short black (inexpensive) wig; √ Black eyeliner √ Green and gold eye shadow - or any other color will do. √ Small brush for applying eye shadow √ Baby wipes or makeup remover wipes for cleaning up afterward. Prerequisite for the Class: Learners must know how to use ZOOM, including how to mute and unmute themselves and work the video portion of the program.

There is an informal quiz that students will receive before, and we will go over that again at the end of the class to see what students have retained.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will discuss warmed up, scented-wax cones that ancient Egyptian men and women wore on their heads to parties, but I will tell learners this is NOT something they should try after the class.
There are numerous websites that show ancient Egyptian makeup in images and on carved stone reliefs. There are also videos on how to put on makeup that resembles the ancient Egyptian look. Material for the content of this class was taken from the following websites: √History of Makeup in Egypt √How Ancient Egyptian Cosmetics Influenced Our Beauty Rituals: √Ancient Egyptian Men and Their Obsession With Makeup: √History of Wigs in Ancient Egypt: The following book was consulted: √ "Dancing for Hathor: Women in Ancient Egypt" by Carolyn Graves-Brown
