Saturday July 30 from 10-6
Creative Makeup and Design Workshop with James and Terri
As artists do we just copy what we see onto a face, or do we channel ideas through our own creative process and then customize them to each individual? This day is about finding your own creative spark and translating your art into wearable and repeatable makeup. We will start with Iconic looks and adapt those to the client, then look at editorial makeup and how to incorporate trend into your own work. Finally we will work on taking an idea from creation to the physical. Class size 8-10.
Cost: $350

Sunday July 31 from 9-6
Your Work On Camera with James and Terri
This workshop provides you with an opportunity to study your work on monitor and make adjustments as needed. How often do our makeups look different on-camera than to our naked eye? Do you understand how light affects your makeup before you get your model to set? Learn to train your eye to see what the monitor and camera see and elevate your makeup. Understand how light changes our work. James and Terri will walk you through two makeups on monitor and then you will create makeup. We will all learn as a team. This class is being held at a location photo studio. We will work with 2 lighting situations. Class size 6-8.
Cost: $500
