Putting Our Best Face Forward

My students need stage makeup, especially foundations that match their skin tones.

My Students

Being on stage can be very intimidating for some students, so taking a drama class was a risk for most of the kids in my class. That is why I'm so proud of them. Each day, they rise to the challenge and push themselves to try new experiences. They have built a safe place to take risks because they are supported by each other. They share wonderful senses of humor and they are always encouraging to one another.

For most of them, this class is their first experience in theater.

I would like to give them an authentic experience while preparing them for their futures. One student has aspirations to be a director. Several want to continue to perform in some capacity after high school. Others just appreciate the arts and want to learn more. A few are very shy and are just beginning to explore the freedom that acting gives them. No matter their reason for taking the class, to me, they are all stars!

My Project

A theater class is a hands-on experience; that is why having quality makeup that is safe for the students to use is so important. Students will design and execute makeup plans for three different kinds of characters: traditional, aged, and special effects creations.

Sketching and planning are important, but the realities of makeup application can only be learned with hands-on assignments.

The same students will be transformed into three different characters and become their partner's project. They will have the important experience of taking their plans from paper to actual application to the actor playing that role. Their fully costumed performances will then be recorded.
