This class can be done in two different ways.
1) day to day make up
2) stage makeup

In my first version of the class I will teach you different make up designs/looks that you can wear on different occasions. Some people are never taught how to do their make up, some it comes naturally. I have shown many people how to apply makeup and I would love to help you too!

In the second version of this class I will teach you how to apply makeup for theatrical purposes. Example: old age makeup, injury makeup, intense realistic animal makeup, mystical makeup. I took classes in college on this and will be happy to spread the fun of theatre makeup!

About Sarah
Hello and Welcome!
My name is Sarah and I am honored you have chosen to look at my profile. Finding the right teacher is so important! I always try to make sure that I accommodate what is best for each individual student when I approach teaching. Before we get into my teach methods, let me tell you a bit about myself and my background.
I graduated from Lees-McRae College in May 2017 with a BFA in musical theater and a minor in art and design. I know at a glance it may be overwhelming how many classes I teach. You see, as Musical Theatre Major I had to learn a VAST amount of topics. I studied many forms of dance, took advance makeup courses, vocal training, acting, along with all of the sub categories that go with it; not to mention with my minor in art and design I know my way around with a paint brush/camera/computer. Art, in all form
s are has always been my way of expressing, feeling, and embracing life.
When I had my internship at the Arkansas Arts Center Children's Theatre and I had to learn ALL aspects of theatre and I had the pleasure to work with kids every day.

I was training American Sign Language at Northern Virginia Community College back in 2012. In 2015 I studied under an ASL master from Gallaudet University. I have continued to further my knowledge of ASL every day. I was recently the ASL captain at work who helped make sure all signs were done correctly and expressed properly.

My goal is to help you learn what you are craving to know! I try to not charge too high for lessons, I know that this is something that is for fun and is not always a possibility so I try to keep it at a lowish price so that everyone has a chance to learn. I am very flexible to schedules. I am willing to have a regular time or switching it up weekly; I have students who travel for a living so they are always on a different time zone; no matter the obstacle I will make it work for you!
Something that is great to know about me is that I never stop training, pursuing growth and knowledge. I read books in these various fields to learn more and more, take master classes, and train with my own vocal coaches. I think art - on any platform, is a great way to get out of your head, free your mind, and open up yourself. So this can be for professional training, a hobby you always wanted to pursue, or a dream you wanted to chase after.

In my class with you, or you child, I will make an individualized lesson plan that focus around what skills you already have, what skills you aim to improve/gain, and how you learn. I am very familiar with the fact that we are ALL different, which means we will all learn DIFFERENTLY. I am willing to explain something in as many ways as one needs in order to understand. I like to think of my lessons as a “safe place” to explore, have fun, grow, and be okay with making mistakes. We will always start with the basics, understand the core of the craft - for example in singing that would be our vocal anatomy and how it all connects together. I use props to help make the concept more visual and graspable as well as diagrams. This is not something someone will pick up in one lesson, so don’t come in saying “I can’t”, you can, you just have to learn HOW. I will show you the how. Remember, this is a learning process, we must embrace each step of our growth.
-----
Some background of how I came to do what I do:
I have been working professionally for theatres for five years now; which has had me living in various towns in NC, OH, AR, and traveling nationwide for tours. I have a lot of experience under my belt for my years. I began taking performance classes as young as age 2 when I started ballet, then I began singing in choir in third grade. I started being in awe of sign language when I saw an interpreter working her magic around age ten and I asked my mom for a sign language book. Expanding my knowledge is what I do for fun, so when you pick me you pick someone who is constantly growing and learning more which will ultimately benefit the student.

I teach a variety of classes that, for the most part, circle around the arts! Some of my classes include, but are not limited to: Acting, Child Acting, Improv Audition Prep, Various styles of “Singing” classes, Ear Training, Musical Theatre, Music Performance, Various “Art” classes, Facial Exercises (Which is great for singers, and those who speak a lot day to day to help relieve tension in the face), and more!
For an explanation on each class, I will be recording a video that describes them and posting that on here soon! There is a video trailer of me singing and dancing that is currently available. If you want to know anything more at all please do not hesitate to send me a message and I will respond as quickly as I possibly can!

I can teach you how to glamour yourself from a day look to a night look! Give you more confidence in knowing how to do your makeup correctly.

About Christina
After a spiritual awakening in the summer of 2011, Christina was drawn to the yoga studio and to meditation. She enjoyed each class so much that she kept going back to experience different types of yoga and different teachers. She has learned that the teacher plays such a huge role in whether the class was of enjoyment or not. When Christina was introduced to Yinki Yoga in 2014, a form of yin or restorative yoga with the added benefits of Reiki energy healing.
After 15 years of being an all day standing hairdresser and having pain in her physical body, she experienced a huge relief both physically and mentally from this practice. This inspired her to get certified in Reiki levels 1 & 2 as well as her certification in Hot and Vinyasa flow Yoga. Over the past 7 years she has transformed her practice of yoga into her daily life on and off t
he mat. Her passion for yoga has literally changed her life in every way and she desires to share that with others looking to change theirs and to feel better within their bodies.

Learn how to apply makeup yourself and show the best side of you!

About Melissa
I started in my dancing journey while I was in college, but I didn't become fully passionate until 2016, when I began taking classes and workshops to improve as fast as I could as a dancer. I'm still learning, but I would love to teach you everything I have learned as a follow and as a lead.

I focus in BACHATA, which is my passion. There's so much emotion in this partner dance, and I hope you are able to discover that emotion too!

About Pia
I have trained with the best and have worked with A-list celebrities working them to collaborate with acting, music videos, style, make-up, stunts, and have over 30 years of experience as coach! I also do career coaching for 20.00 per hour and can guide you to do the right things as an actor or beginning acting. I know I mentioned only teaching advanced students. I have well over 10 years of experience with trained academy teachers, Lewis Smith, Milton Katsellas who trained Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. I've worked with Jared Leto on his music video and worked on hundreds of sets as their creative director. I would love to teach students how to have confidence and find work as an actor and get experience while they are waiting for their big break. How to have confidence in front of the camera or wherever you are.
