If you love to play with color, design & texture, grab your makeup kit and brush and create a masterpiece using an actor’s face as a canvas! You will learn basic stage makeup application and create face maps for each character, using shadowing, feathering and layering, as well as specialty techniques, such as aging, facial hair, scars, burns, and magical animals and creatures. Stretch your creativity even further when you design looks of your own! A Ben Nye makeup kit is required for this class. Returning families can bring their own and new families can purchase before the first day.
Hello! I am so excited to be joining the CYT family. I have been involved in theater since I was in high school, where I participated in a number of high school plays and musicals. As an adult, I have directed a number of middle school and high school productions as both the head and assistant directors. As a CYT parent volunteer, I have chaired the make-up committee for various productions, including Shrek, Aladdin, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The theater feels like home to me, and I love sharing that passion with others!
