• Special Effects Makeup Camp FASH 9278


    Our Special Effects Makeup Camp is an intensive one-week summer camp for young people (ages 14 to 17) who are interested in exploring the world of character creation and special effects makeup artistry. This camp teaches young people to apply special effects makeup using professional products in our well-equipped special effects lab and is led by professional makeup artists with years of experience in film and television. Participants learn to execute a variety of effects (including cuts, abrasions, bruising, scabs, scars and black eyes) and explore the techniques used to create realistic zombies, aliens and other creatures. Taking inspiration from popular entertainment, participants also get to create fantasy looks using airbrush techniques and 3D effects. The camp culminates with a final project that encompasses all the newly acquired skills and gives participants the choice between creating their own video or taking part in a photoshoot in our on-site photography studio.



    The camp will be limited to 12 campers to ensure individualized attention.


    Participants must be comfortable practicing their skills on other campers and having other campers practice on them. Also note that scheduled activities and field trips are subject to change.


    The parent/legal guardian for each participant must complete and submit the Special Effects Makeup Camp Registration Information Form and Waiver before the start of camp.
