What’s it all about?

Have you ever watched a pro face painter at work and wondered “How did they do that?” Maybe you have a family birthday, school fete, or fundraiser approaching? This class will allow you to experiment with face painting techniques and create your own mini masterpiece that will bring a smile to any kid’s dial.

What will we cover?

This class is for absolute beginners, and we will start by covering the basics – a rundown of the kit and tools, safety and hygiene practices, and basic brush and sponge techniques. We will then apply this knowledge by painting two of the most popular designs for girls and boys – a butterfly, and a monster mask. You will go home with a step-by-step sheet of both designs to keep.

You will be practicing your new skills on yourself and other class members, so bring your sense of humour and adventure, and be prepared to get painted! We will supply wet-wipes if you choose not to wear your art work home.

Please bring a hand-mirror or tabletop standing mirror that is big enough for you to see your entire face. We also recommend bringing an old hand towel to protect your clothing.

Please note: We use only the highest quality safety-tested non-toxic cosmetic-grade face and body makeup. Despite this, as with all cosmetics, allergic reactions can occur in a small percentage of people. We will begin the class with a patch test to be safe, but participate at your own risk. More info on our materials can be found here.
