The Philadelphia Academy of Make-Up & Special Effects:
Situated in Bala Cynwyd, just 15 minutes north of downtown Philadelphia, The Philadelphia Academy for Make-Up and Special Effects is the first school in the Philadelphia Region to teach its students how to apply make-up and create special effects. All classes are taught by highly skilled, trained and certified make-up artists. Supplies and materials are supplied for use in all classes. Topics include Fundamentals of Make Up-Theory, Make Up for Film & TV, Special Effects Make Up, and Bridal Boot Camp programs.

Teaching Methods:

The school's teaching is based on the 'Atelier Method'. The Atelier Method is a technique of fine art instruction modeled after the private art studio schools of 15th-19th century Europe.

Taking its name from the French word for "artist's studio," the Atelier Method is a form of private instruction in which an artist, usually a professional painter, works closely with a small number of students to progressively train them. Atelier Schools can be found around the world, particularly in North America and Western Europe.

Carolyn Withers Diamond - Founder & Director:
Carolyn's love of art has beautifully and naturally transitioned to the art of professional make-up application, which she has been practicing for more than 20 years. Carolyn has been trained by internationally renowned make-up artists and continually strives to expand her skills and knowledge through education, travel and hands-on experience.
