​Class Description:

Over the course of this class, we will discuss, briefly, the reasons for stage makeup and look at some examples of what can be done with it and how it can enhance a production.  We will also get into some hands-on work, learning about some of the most common makeup applications (basic stage makeup, corrective techniques, aging, and some basic effects makeup like bruises or road-rash).  Students should have their own makeup kit and brushes.


Instructor Bio:

Curtis' theater career began in stage makeup, and has branched out through props and costume design, scenic art, set construction, writing, acting, and fight choreography.  He currently works as part of Lagoon's Entertainment Division, as the Scenic and Wardrobe Assistant Manager, and regularly freelances with productions throughout the Wasatch Front.  Makeup continues to be his 'first love' of the stage, however, and he has been involved with over a decade of productions at Layton High School, twenty years of Frightmares Entertainment, and several other productions in the area in that capacity.
