Student Experience

The American Pinup Academy was established to provide a premier education in Makeup fundamentals to students in the Washington DC metro.

Our interactive classroom experience and educational approach have a reality-based context. By challenging students to continually work on a rotating range of faces, integrating professional photo sessions. Students are given extensive opportunity to apply their developing skills. It's about honing your craft, developing your portfolio, expanding your creativity and refining your business so that you have the know-how and confidence to promote yourself. Our courses include both theoretical and practical study with a stronger emphasis on the practical. Written and practical exams are given at the end of each section.

Students are also encouraged to bring their own digital camera to keep a record of their practical work. Please note that it is necessary to bring models (female and sometimes male) for practical exercises and exams. Students must provide their own models.
