On 24th April, body painter Anna Lingis ran a workshop at Sussex Make-up Academy
This workshop sold out within 24 hours and we had four extremely talented and lucky students attend this full on action packed day.
Anna started the day with an introduction to herself and how she has become the make-up artist that she is now known as. She then began her demo on model Tys Panayis explaining different tools that she likes to use, application techniques, light and shade and what extra detail you should be adding to create a bodypaint to be proud of.
Then it was straight over to the students to get stuck in and to create a full body paint under the helpful guidance of Anna.
Together the students created this full body paint of Wonder Woman. In total, this took four students plus Anna 4 hours to create, unfortunately there was no time left to give Wonder Woman her boots.
This workshop was full on hands on learning with a lot of skills and advise shared by Anna. All students had a lot of fun and was extremely proud of what they achieved.
At the end of the day, optional homework was given to each student to create their own bodypaint – just concentrating on the face and shoulders. So far we have had one piece of homework back and Principal Amy Prifti gave it a go too…. Hopefully over the next few weeks, we will be seeing a bit more homework from our students.
We are confirming dates for our next Bodypainting workshop with Anna Lingis so please keep an eye out for dates on our website www.sussexmakeupacademy.co.uk
