The mission of the AMUA Special Effects Makeup Artist Program is to educate the next
generation of special effects makeup professionals to excel in the creative artists industry. Through a combination of lecture and hands-on labs, students will build practical and conceptual knowledge of the techniques and procedures required to compose, create, apply, and finish industry standard prosthetic-based human character designs for the print, stage, and motion picture industries.
Beginning with an introductory visual history, lectures will continue to explore industry standard applications, while labs will instruct on specific techniques and materials that students will individually apply. Each assignment builds upon the previous in order to establish an interconnected understanding of material and technical standards. All students are required to design and execute on an end-of-term capstone project, supervised by instructors. The capstone offers multiple opportunities for advanced make-up design instruction.
