Training for a truly creative profession!

Apprenez un vrai métier créatif!

In 2 or 3 years

This 2 or 3 year course prepares students of baccalaureate level (minimum) to be professional make-up artists for film, fashion, television and special effects. As well as for the performing arts: theatre, dance, opera and other events. It also allows make-up artists to work for cosmetic brands, and demonstrate in their outlets.


The training is based on three main areas: theory, techniques and practice.
The student evolves from the learning phase to the hands on practical phase and that of creation.
This evolution allows him/her to move into the professional world.


This progression takes place step by step and is guided by thirty working professionals: Head make-up artists, hairdressers, prosthetic make-up artists, technicians, costume designers, photographers and cinematographers. The teaching staff impart their expertise and know-how. They educate the future make-up artists on the requirements of the profession and its evolution (taking into consideration the use of digital numerics).
This program involves an internship of 18 weeks.

Projects

These aim to establish a link between the different courses over a period of instruction.
At each of these periods, the student works on various projects.


In the first year, they work for example on the creation of a character in a play, "La Folle de Chaillot" or "Le Malade Imaginaire".


In the second year, at the end of their chosen option, students carry out a project in direct relation to this option (eg, those who chose the special effects will create an alien character, a Frankenstein or Cyrano de Bergerac).


The construction of a character, involves consistence. The student works on the hair and/or hairpieces, and decides on costumes and accessories.
