Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 28, 2010
Makeup artist Terri Tomlinson will offer professional training and education for new and existing makeup artists at The Makeup Training Academy - Dallas. Summer courses start in June.
Focusing on professional makeup for fashion, production, bridal and the retail industry, Makeup Training Academy (MTA) provides a well-rounded understanding of the makeup business as a whole while teaching a strong skill set on which to build.
With over 20 years experience in both the cosmetic and production industries, Ms. Tomlinson offers students an opportunity to train locally with an expert who both honors and respects her craft. "Makeup artistry has brought so much into my life, and has exposed me to things I might never have seen otherwise. I'm so happy to be passing on what I have learned. Artists need a strong foundation on which to grow, and not everyone is able to study in L.A. where most of the professional schools are. We need this in Dallas."
Classes are taught at Bolt Productions, a working photography studio. Utilizing both practical hands on training with lecture students begin applying makeup day one as they learn the craft of professional artistry. Currently Ms. Tomlinson offers a Level 1 and 2 course to students which in combination fulfills many state licensing requirements. Each course is 2 weeks long and consists of 80 hours. Students can participate in a "working lunch" two days a week where industry and career advice is discussed. Another unique feature of classes at MTA is "model Friday", an opportunity for students to work on professional models and have pictures made for their portfolios.
Ms. Tomlinson plans to add workshops for consumers as well as advanced classes on hairstyling for set, lighting and camera systems, HD, and building a portfolio early next year. When not teaching she plans to continue working, creating hair and makeup for print photography, video, film, and Television. Ms. Tomlinson is represented by The Campbell Agency.
