This week we are figuring out how to put on makeup for the theatre. We are starting with straight makeup and will progress to character makeup–specifically, old age makeup. The video we watch in class is great for demonstrating technique, although the presenter tries a bit too hard with the jokes and acting…
Here is the handout we are using while we watch and learn from the DVD.

We have read some articles from designers of the Lion King and have dipped onto our theatre text, Basic Drama Projects, to suss out the characteristics of straight makeup. We have our first lab set up for Monday…can’t wait!
