Color, art and fun combine into our most joyously vibrant course yet! Our experts will teach you the art of face painting – From working with children at festivals to otherworldly Halloween looks, face painting is a transformative practice. With just paint, you can turn into a comic book vixen, mottled mermaid, or cotton candy kitten! Join us on a journey through the types of face painting: children, adults, Halloween, and special effects. As you watch our transformation videos, you’ll learn the secrets only the experts know!

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

Our face painting experts will take you from the very basics - the types of paint, glitter, brushes, and sponges you should use - to expert subjects like using horror prosthetics! Along the way you’re going to get information on how to safely paint children, how to monetize your business, an inside look into creating a horror look, and so much more great information.

Anyone who would like to be a face painter will benefit from this course! With in-depth video tutorials and expert advice, you’ll be able to confidently learn about this fascinating skill.

Face and body painting artists have a wide and fascinating variety of careers to choose from! Some make a good living working festivals, birthday parties, and events.
