Since 1998, The School Of Professional Makeup Ltd. has been training in makeup art. As Canada’s leading boutique school, we are dedicated in creating professional makeup artists thru affordable, integral training.
From day one, The School Of Pro Makeup Ltd. has never issued student numbers. We operate strictly on a first name basis in this intimate training facility. We invite you to take a tour of our facility, meet with our instructors & see first hand the quality & value that our style of makeup training will afford you.
Small size classes, a constantly evolving curriculum (i.e. airbrush), and seasoned instructors that work in the industry are a winning formula for the success of our graduates. Our soul focus is to hire dynamic, talented faculty, who will not only demonstrate their live art, but impart their years of “ on set “ experience to the student. Our goal is to get your artistry out there.
Our private school specializes in Makeup Artistry, only! Most colleges have many divisions of education. The hire personal are responsible for multiple vocations: makeup, welding, hospitality, etc. Robert Closs, a makeup artist of thirty years, hand picks all faculty that are hired.
At Colleges you are often required to take additional courses (filler courses) to round out your education. We don’t have prerequisites for Cosmetology, English or Psychology! You are here to learn makeup skills & applications.
Colleges can have up to forty people in a classroom. Here at Pro Makeup, we have a low, one-to-eight average student-teacher ratio. We focus our attention on intensive, hands-on tutorials to train you to apply & learn makeup artistry skills.
When comparing class ratio to other private competitors, our intuition still has an apprentice style-training format and therefore an overall lower student teacher ratio.
We are located out of the downtown core, but still readily accessible on the Toronto TTC subway line. This affords us the opportunity to substantially reduce market rate tuition. You aren’t paying for the overhead of administration and a large infrastructure. You are paying for makeup training. This has been our mission statement and a philosophy we stood by from the beginning. Affordable, integral training.
Lastly, The School of Professional Makeup Ltd was founded by a makeup artist, who actively drives the company. Robert Closs, managing director, has worked in New York, South America and all over Canada in the Television and the Fashion Industry. His thirty years of experience guides his decision making in curriculum development, hiring and over all daily operations.
