The Program

The Academy program offers eight workshops on a once-a-week basis. Workshops are approximately three hours long and normally run in the evening. Scheduling may vary depending on the instructor's needs. Please see instructor for start time and date.

Each class is limited to six students who in turn become the 'Academy of Cosmetic Arts Make-up Crew' as advertised in the Reel Directory and Film Commission. Production companies provide intern-ships which are non-paying and are offered only upon availability through the Academy of Cosmetic Arts. Participation in internship activities is highly encouraged but not required.
