Course Delivery Method:

This course uses a blended format that combines both classroom instruction and online learning (via Blackboard Learn). It starts with a mandatory online Blackboard Learn orientation.

Course Essentials:

This course requires you to work on other students and to let other students work on you in order to gain the skills you need to work on models and clients. You will also be required to bring your own model on occasion and for practical exams. This makeup artist course has a dress code but does not require you to purchase a kit. The professional film and television makeup kit you purchased for our FASH 9230 Makeup 3: Film and Television course contains almost everything you need for this course.
