This is a perfect time to study & prepare for an exciting career as a Makeup Artist! During the Coronavirus pandemic, we have gone to a hybrid-blended curriculum- live virtual classes combined with in-school sessions. This allows students to begin training from the safety of their home, and finish their program on campus later.
Our virtual classroom is broadcasted over Zoom. This allows our students to attend a live class and interact with their instructor and fellow students. The instructor can easily lecture and do demonstrations, break students into smaller discussion groups, communicate privately with individuals, and easily show a video or PowerPoint.
The instructor can see all of the students while he or she lectures, or choose for one student to be on the main screen to ask a question or show their work. For example, after you have done an injury simulation on your arm, the teacher can choose to critique your work and help you as she views your work privately or with the class. There is also a chat feature so that during a lecture, if you do not want to interrupt, you can write a comment or question, to be answered at the end of the demo or whenever the instructor chooses.
There is little difference between evaluating student performance in-house or online. When students are in-house, instructors evaluate students’ work on camera. We do this because most makeup artistry jobs are in film, television, print work, or freelance like wedding & special events. All students need to observe and evaluate their work on camera.
Our online delivery is following our traditional campus delivery. Short lectures, PowerPoint slides, video presentations, and live demonstrations make up a large portion of our curriculum. This is followed by hands-on guidance. Students apply makeup on themselves (or a friend or family member) and all work is critiqued on camera.
