MAKEUP DESIGN I
Instructors: Marianne Wittelsberger & Steve Bauer, Jokesters Productions
2:00 pm - 4:45 pm Room CA 348, Women's Dessing
The name of the class is stage makeup, but that name
really misses many aspects of what we teach. For example, the
students will learn real world makeup techniques that they can use
for the rest of their lives. Also, we explore television makeup, as
well as makeup for film and special effects.
The student learns to create a professional stage
makeup for a variety of characters and roles plus knowledge of
makeup materials, tools and techniques.
The class will meet one day a week for 165 minutes
each. The first part of the class is a lecture including
videos, slides, demonstrations, internet research and explanations
The second part of the class is
creating the assigned makeup. The class requires library
research locating photographs, sources and viewing videotapes.
Research is required for each makeup. You may use paintings,
drawings, videotapes and original artwork.
Come to class
prepared to take notes. Wear old clothes because makeup and makeup
remover can get on what you wear.
For hygiene sake, never
share make up.
Both instructors have made a living using
makeup for the past twenty years and have a tremendous passion for
Stage Makeup is a an invaluable tool for the actor
and performer, because with makeup you can create characters that
you would otherwise never be cast for and the right makeup will
complete your character.
Makeup is fun and exciting, and
some comedy comes naturally, like when women put on beards.
In this class, many types of makeups and characters will be
covered and it will be lots of fun transposing yourselves into a new
character. Enjoy the fun.
