Theatrical Make Up Course Gets Creepy

This week, the learners experimented with creepy make up! Our model, Jack, made up like the famous Beetlejuice, scared everybody at Blackburne House - a job well done!

The VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Theatrical, Special Effects and Hair and Media Make-Up is a technical level qualification for learners seeking a career as an employed or self-employed Theatrical Media Makeup Artist. Employment will involve working with performers to a high level of technical ability, providing hair and makeup services in the media, theatre, performing arts, fashion and photographic industries.

This qualification builds on existing knowledge and understanding and will develop an enhanced repertoire of technical skills to prepare learners for employment as a professional theatrical media makeup artist. Learners will further develop their knowledge and skills by selecting a number of optional specialist units which include creating and casting small prosthetic pieces & bald caps, face & body art, fantasy hair design, production arts planning, eyelash & brow treatments & 2D visual communication.
