10:15 20 Tips to be More Accessibility Friendly

Arts organizations can engage in many positive, proactive ways to be welcoming and accessible to all people — in particular to patrons with disabilities. This session will lay out a number of practices you can undertake to make your board, building, programs, website and communications as accessible as possible — and win you some new friends and supporters.

Instructor Jon Skaalen worked 20 years for VSA Minnesota, the state organization on disability, and continues on boards of the MN Access Alliance, MN Assn. of Community Theatres, ArtReach St. Croix and Ole Olson Onstage.

12:00 Lunch (on your own)

1:30 Advanced Makeup Techniques

Learn how professionals “Do it!” Utilize techniques used by the Great Masters of art, like da Vinci, Rembrandt, etc. Learn the types of makeup and tools to be used, how and when to use them. Learn the order of application (handout supplied). Learn shading and shaping to bring life to the character. Learn the “Geometry” of the face.

Learn “WHAT NOT TO DO!” And much more.

Instructor Christopher Russo has worked a lifetime designing makeup for theatres from coast to coast — culminating at the Lyric Opera of Chicago and the Chicago Symphony’s production of “Fidelio.” Teaching credits range from professional makeup schools to a faculty teaching position at UW Milwaukee. He continues to freelance as Makeup Studio FX.
