JCI Makeup Blog: Goal Setting



2016 is coming to a fast halt as we enter into the busy holiday season. This is a time to be glamorous as you hop from party to party, but also a time to reflect on what you have accomplished during the year. It’s a great moment to think ahead to where you want 2017 to take you as well. Set some goals for yourself! Whether you are hoping to secure a new position, enter a competition or build credits to get into the film union, the team at JCI is here to support you!


Time can fly by this time of year with holiday parties, busy schedules and family gatherings. Take some time to outline what you have achieved, and list those things you are still striving for. Try to be open to possibilities that might come your way in the new year. Reach out to your old teachers, former co-workers or clients. Check your emails, and direct messages often. Opportunities are ever changing and you have to respond asap to make sure you don’t miss out!

The Makeup Artistry Diploma Program

JCI has gained an industry-wide reputation for excellence, giving students an exceptional network of contacts and resources when they enter into the marketplace. During the 10-month full time program, students study everything from glamour and special occasion makeup to special effects makeup and prosthetics application techniques. With classes limited to 16 students, individualized attention and encouragement foster each student’s personal  and professional growth potential.

John Casablancas is the pioneer of prosthetic lab techniques and face casting in Western Canada. This advanced level of training affords our graduates amazing opportunities and a significant advantage for a career in film, TV or theatre.
