If you haven’t met us already, let me introduce ourselves and tell you what we are all about! We are The Art of Makeup School. We provide a quality education in the art, business, and techniques of professional makeup artistry for the film, television, special effects, theater, media, and fashion industries. We prepare students with technical and creative skills, but also marketing skills required to achieve a successful career in makeup artistry. We provide hand selected makeup supplies that are current, popular, and the most professional in the industry. Our location is in a quiet, safe, and beautiful neighborhood on the border of SW Portland and Lake Oswego, surrounded by trees, perfect for creative inspiration.
The Art of Makeup is an ongoing resource for continuing mentorship, networking, and community job placement assistance. Our graduates are placed on our job board for 18 months with the goal of giving them on set experiential opportunities for continued education and networking opportunities to get these new graduates working!
We are currently members of OMPA, and stay involved with the community, regularly participating at OMSI After Dark, The Northwest Filmmakers Summit, The Oregon Ballet Theater performances, and recently shared a booth with Oregon Film at the Northwest Youth Career Expo. We regularly take field trips to the headquarters of Make-Up Artist Magazine and The International Makeup Artist Tradeshow (IMATS), and look forward to an upcoming visit to the set of Koin6 news.
We continue finding additional field trips, industry involvement, partnerships and guest speakers to offer our students real world experience and are proud to contribute skilled talent to our local fashion, media, theater, and film industries.
