Makeup Artistry

// Program Overview

45 Weeks | 20 Hours per week | 16 Students per Class

JCI’s award-winning Makeup Artistry Diploma Program has a reputation for supplying the most sought-after graduates who become movers and shakers in the industry.

During the ten-month, full-time program, you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of makeup artistry — from everyday beauty to nightmare-inducing special effects. Our instructors are graduates themselves, which means they can relate to you every step of the way. They’re also successful artists in a variety of fields, so your course material will always be cutting-edge and relevant. We’ve kept our class sizes small (16 students max.) to ensure you receive the individual attention you need. This also fosters a sense of community between you and your fellow artists.

As the pioneer of prosthetic lab techniques and face-casting in Western Canada, JCI is often the first stop for recruiters. Our dedicated Industry Liaison, Jennine, will work with you to think beyond the classroom — where will you go from here? Jennine has a network of connections at her disposal, which means job postings are communicated directly to you. Whether you want to pursue makeup artistry in fashion, film, or special effects, an education at JCI will give you a serious advantage when starting your career.
