Celebrity Makeup Artist to Prepare Aspiring Artists for Entertainment & Beauty Careers
SEATTLE – One of Hollywood’s busiest and most versatile artists, Colour Box Makeup Studios founder Kerry Herta, is returning to Seattle to teach aspiring makeup artists the latest techniques used in the entertainment and beauty industries. This is the second consecutive year that Herta’s workshop – Makeup Boot Camp, March 17-22, 2011 – will be held in Seattle. The exclusive workshop is again limited to 10 aspiring artists.
Herta is the creative force behind many of the entertainment, beauty and fashion industries’ most memorable faces. Her success across every genre – film, HD television, editorial, beauty, fashion, bridal – make her one of the industry’s true creative leaders.
A longtime mentor of up-and-coming artists, Herta has chosen to educate while continuing to work on her industry’s most recognizable projects. She has carefully designed Makeup Boot Camp to provide both real-world training and hands-on experience she seeks when selecting a professional makeup department.
“The biggest challenges for aspiring artists are affording quality education and gaining real-world experience,” Herta said. “The Makeup Boot Camp provides both. Artists learn the latest techniques in a nurturing classroom environment and complete projects in the fast-paced setting found in real production studios.”
Each student will learn and apply the latest techniques through daily projects – many of which mirror projects Herta has undertaken during her career – using live models and industry-leading products from Koh Gen Do and FACE Stockholm. Boot Camp also addresses the industry’s business and occupational realities, such as ethics, agents and labor unions.
Upon completion of this workshop, artists are eligible for advanced level workshops and other ongoing support and assistance as they begin their careers. They also receive a wide variety of products from Koh Gen Do and FACE Stockholm for their own makeup kits and qualify for both companies’ professional artist discount programs.
Artists also have the experience to begin assisting on film and television projects. Some former students have joined Herta’s own makeup teams.
“My goal is to empower and inspire the passions of young artists and help them compete for jobs in Washington’s growing film, HD television, editorial and beauty industries,” Herta said. “My biggest reward is working with the same artists I helped train.”
