Our academy includes several workshops for the amateur along with courses for professionals. Its classes for the regular client include a four-part workshop in which each phase of makeup – skin care, contouring, eyes, lips and cheeks, and hair styling – is demonstrated, and aids such as closed-circuit television are used. There are specialized courses for the mature woman and the black woman and one on skin care for both men and women. The school holds daytime and evening classes, generally four hours long.
