Course Syllabus: Face Painting 101
with CEU Certificate*
Face painting, simply defined, is the act of applying cosmetic paint to a person's face for entertainment, theatrical, or even symbolical reasons. In today's society, perhaps the time we see examples of face painting the most are at Halloween or at school carnivals and other charity functions where face painter's set up booths.
However, face painting is not a trend that's come about in recent years, as you will soon learn. It's also not a craft that's limited to Halloween or to entertain small children.
