Special Effects Makeup Class - Learn Bruises, Burns & Abrasions

Have you ever wanted to learn how to freak out your friends with make-up? Are you an actor that would like to learn basic techniques to be able to do your own make-up and not hire someone?

Then please join Stephanie Cox-Connolly as she walks you through bruises, cuts, abrasions, wounds, sores, bullet holes and burns. You'll get the knowledge and the tools to create good looking facial distortions for whatever your next project may be.

  • Basic anatomy of a wound
  • How to do different kinds of bruising
  • How to do easy and quick scratches/cuts
  • How to do sores (some with household items), skin discoloration
  • How to make a bullet hole
  • How to create that burnt skin look

School Notes: OUTSIDE FOOD & DRINKS ARE NOT ALLOWED. QED has coffee, tea, soda, beer & wine plus snacks and pre-made wraps and sandwiches available.

Refund Policy
We require at least seven (7) days' notice before a class in order to issue a refund and there are no transfers to future classes allowed. We're a small operation and purchase our own supplies and keep classes extremely affordable, so we have to operate this way just to stay in business.

But, all is not lost, tickets are transferable meaning we will allow anyone to take your place in class, so check around with your friends to see if someone else would like your spot.

In case of bad weather, classes WILL always take place unless the subway system is closed down. If you have issues traveling, please keep this in mind when you purchase your ticket. If we do cancel for weather or an emergency, we will try to reschedule the class on the same day of the week at the same scheduled time as soon as possible. If you cannot make the rescheduled date, we will refund you the price of your seat.

Stephanie’s class was extremely informative and fun! In a short amount of time, we learned to do bruises, cuts, scrapes, scratches, and burns. It was also great that Stephanie let us keep the tools we used during class to practice at home. Definitely looking forward to a part 2 of this class

It was a fun class but also very informative for a short one day class. A good, inexpensive class to get an idea of basic techniques. The teacher was fun and helpful, and for a 2 hr class, there was a good amount of opportunity for hands on application.

I did enjoy the hands on. I was hoping for more hands on building prosthetics.
