Welcome to Winter-Spring 2018 Schedule

The Philadelphia Academy for Make-Up and Special Eff
is the first
makeup school in the
Philadelphia Region to teach its students how to apply make-up and create special effects. As a makeup school we base out teaching on the 'Atelier Method'. The Atelier Method is a technique of fine art instruction modeled after the private art studio schools of 15th-19th century Europe. Taking its name from the French word for "artist's studio," the Atelier Method is a form of private instruction in which an artist, usually a professional painter, works closely with a small number of students to progressively train them. Atelier
Schools can be found around the world, particularly in North America and Western Europe.  As a makeup school, using the Atelier Method provides a more intimate environment for artistic expression while providing a more rewarding hands on experience.

The methods used by Atelier Instructors may vary greatly from one studio to another; however, artists using the Atelier approach tend to be united in their desire to reintroduce classical methods and techniques.  

All make-up classes are taught by highly skilled, trained and certified make-up artists.  Supplies and materials are supplied for use in all classes.  Make-up and brushes can be purchased upon request.  
As a makeup school one-on-one make-up instruction is available upon request for image enhancement, camouflage, or glamour. The Philadelphia Academy for Make-Up and Special Effects also provides on site training in art of makeup application.
