Play your part in the glamorous and exciting world of film, theatre, media and television as a creative make-up artist and you’ll not only find out, but you’ll also be able to help shape the future of this dynamic industry.

Specialist make-up artist courses

To be able to take your creative make-up skills to the stage and screen, you first need to make sure you’re well-equipped with the know-how and skills you need to succeed.

That starts with getting the right training. Studying a specialist make-up artist course will teach you the essential tools of the trade specifically within the context of applying make-up and prosthetics for theatre, television and film.

If you’re looking for specialist make-up artist courses in Perth specifically, TrainSmart Australia (TSA) offers a CUA51015 Diploma of Screen and Media that sees students working behind the scenes of award-winning productions and alongside internationally-acclaimed make-up artists.

Students on the course recently had the exciting opportunity to work backstage as make-up artists to the cast of the internationally-acclaimed and award-winning musical theatre production We Will Rock You at Perth’s prestigious His Majesty’s Theatre. They also worked with the cast of the smash hit musical Mamma Mia during an avant-garde photoshoot.

These once-in-a-lifetime opportunities are examples of the several work experience opportunities students on the course get to take part in throughout the duration of their studies.

The course also offers the opportunity to work alongside special effects make-up artist David Willis – internationally-acclaimed for his creative work on the likes of The Matrix trilogy and Star Wars.

Students on the course regularly receive professional praise for the make-up artistry skills they’ve acquired through the course.
