Course Alt Comprehensive Airbrushing


Become proficient in the art of airbrush make-up with our 5 day Airbrushing course. Learn the techniques and practical skills to master the art of airbrushing and care for your equipment.

Airbrushing is a versatile and quick method of applying makeup. It is used for TV presenters, character actors, prosthetics, body art and for temporary hair colouring.  As a working make-up artist, you may be required to have this skill as it is particularly popular for HDTV.

Passionate about their art, our airbrushing tutors have a broad range of experience on the latest TV and film productions. They have also consulted on product development for airbrushing brand Mistair. You will learn in small tutor groups that provide plenty of hands-on experience. The practical workshops will be based at The Iver Academy within Pinewood Studios.  

Entry requirements: Must be aged 18+ and pass an interview. No formal qualifications are required. All we ask is that you have a passion and drive to learn.

Course Payment: A full payment is required to secure a place on this make-up course. We have several options to help fund your make-up course including interest free payment plans, bursaries and loans.
