MUD’s roots are in Los Angeles. So are the film industry’s – and that’s no coincidence. When we founded MUD in 1997, we had a vision: to create a school for make-up artists, by make-up artists. Here, students can gain expertise in the varying aspects of make-up artistry from a team of educators who are also industry professionals.
Located in downtown Burbank, MUD’s Los Angeles Campus is near some of the biggest production studios in the world. Our students can choose from four comprehensive make-up programs or individual courses, learning the basics of beauty, character, or special make-up effects for film, television, fashion and retail. They’ll also get access to career advice, a robust alumni network and perspectives from working make-up artists, who share their insights about the latest innovations in the craft.
