Classes take place in our store (1515 Center Street North, Calgary). Bring a pen and paper if you would like to take notes, and drinks or snacks if you would like.

We are very excited to have

Amandamazing Makeup Art

Maximum 10 participants. Please bring a model to work on.

This is another pioneer workshop and the focus will be specifically on Halloween makeup for children. The makeup we have at Don's is of course safe for adults and children however some products are definitely easier to apply and remove then others. We will discuss various products and options for different Halloween looks and then demo a couple of different Halloween makeups on our models.

Our participants as always are encouraged to bring a model to work on and in this case children are especially encouraged since the makeup is for them anyway! 

We will have a palette for each participant to use and keep. We will also have other products available to use on your model. Playing with makeup is fun and we will encourage both artist and model to have some fun!

Halloween Treats will be provided so give us your best "Trick or Treat!"


$50.00 + GST

Maximum 12 participants. Please bring a model to work on.

This is a great workshop for drama teachers!

In this workshop we will be teaching you two techniques for aging. The first will be suitable for stage and will be using conouring techniques with highlights and shadows to achieve extreme aging. The second demonstration will involve 3 dimensional aging, which is necessary for film or intimate theatre, by creating actualy phsical wrinkles in the skin which will be augmented by makeup contouring. We will also demonstrate aging on on hands, teeth and hair as well!

Participants bring a model and will be provided with all the products they need to age their model using some of the techniques we will deomonstrate. It is recommeded that the model is an adult for maximum results.
