Course Description

1. Basic Course on the Design and Application of Halloween Makeup.

Class will last approximately 2 hours, depending upon the number of participants.

First come – first enrolled.

2. Course Materials: Participants may bring any makeup materials they have.

A limited amount of makeup will be supplied by the instructor as needed.

3. Individual course outline will be followed.

4. Handouts will be provided. (Lots of them.)

Picture examples will be provided.

Makeup charts (male/female) will be provided for design stage.

Note pages will be provided so participants can recreate the makeup later.

5. Participants must sign a permission slip (to get dirty, which is half the fun).

6. Halloween masks are expensive and not personalized. Makeup done directly on the face is much less expensive and can be changed from year to year.

Jockinsen was one of the three original makeup artists who began the KNOTT'S SCARY FARM HALLOWEEN HAUNT.

He did that event for the first 16 years. So, he has done literally thousands of Halloween faces and makeups.

The class is not scary - but the outcome will be!
