The Philadelphia Academy for Make Up
and Special Effects
Philadelphia Academy for Make-Up and Special Effects is the first school
in the Philadelphia Region to teach its students how to apply make-up and create special effects. The school's
teaching is based 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.
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.
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.
One-on-one make-up instruction is available upon request for image enhancement, camouflage, or glamour.
