DO I NEED TO BUY A KIT FOR CLASS?


Depending on the course you choose we have created a custom kit tailored to propell your freelance career forward. All Phase 1 Philosophy courses provide products for students to use such as makeup and hair styling products. However, if you are a working artist looking to test in to a Phase 2 or 3 class your kit will be inspected on your test day and/or on the first day of class. Don't have everything you need?

DO YOU OFFER JOB PLACEMENT?


No, we do not offer job placement. In our course we will give you the knowledge on how to begin your job search. We also offer business courses to help you fully form a business and/or level it up.




WHO WILL I WORK ON IN CLASS? DO I NEED TO BRING IN A MODEL?


In order to be a working artist you will need hands on training, not sit to be another students' model. We will let you know ahead of time when a model is needed. While we have a list of past models it may be easier to have a friend or family member sit for you. The more people you can work on the better!




WHAT TIME ARE CLASSES HELD?


Class starts at 10am and goes until 3pm, Monday through Thurdsay (Sometimes Friday if there is a Monday holiday). There will be a short break in the middle of the day to grab some coffee, lunch or to just stretch your legs. We kept evenings and weekends available so that you can start building your freelance career while attending the academy.




WHO ARE CLASSES TAUGHT BY?


Classes will be taught by either one of the co-founders, guest speaker and/or by a hand chosen instructor. All the Alchemy Beauty Academy instructors have been trained by the co-founders of the academy and have had years of experience in their respective field. Alchemy Beauty Academy prides themselves in the techniques and way of training they have developed with over 25+ years of training and experience.




AFTER I COMPLETE A COURSE, CAN I COME BACK FOR A REFRESHER?
