Makeup Artists - Theatrical
|Overview:||Apply makeup to performers to reflect period, setting, and situation of their role.|
A.S. Art: Concentrations in Art & Design or Art History
A.S. Theatre: Concentrations in Acting or Technical Theatre
|Job Outlook:||Employment of Theatrical Makeup Artists is expected to grow faster than the average through 2018. Continued increases in the demand for entertainment will lead to new openings. At the same time, the increasing use of computer-generated effects in films and the popularity of reality television have limited growth for this occupation. As this is a small occupation, the actual number of new jobs will be few.|
|Education Level:||The typical training required for this career is generally a High School Degree or GED Certificate.|
Understanding acquiring positions in this field may be enhanced through continuing academic study (i.e. earning a baccalaureate or a master's degree) and/or work experience in the field, Queensborough Community College has established transfer agreements with other institutions for students who wish to further pursue their educational goals. Students are highly encouraged to meet with one of our Career Services Advisor to fully understand the opportunities available through study in their degree program.
