To accomplish this, how the facility is designed and equipped is also essential in supporting the curriculum delivery.

Professionally designed lighting capture colors realistically, perfect for color matching beauty and airbrush makeup. HDTVs and video cameras project live instructor demos, a dispensary to clean makeup brushes and body forms, and a professionally lit photography studio to capture student work.
