Nightmare on Begin Street!

Students in the Westmount Public School Fine Arts Academy will be participating in a very special class that will definitely not be for the faint of heart! The Grade 7 and 8 students will be creating ghoulish and ghastly Halloween themed cosmetic special effects with a local makeup artist.

“Our students are very excited to learn about special effects with a local makeup artist to create professional Halloween-themed looks,” says Laura Bijzak, Teacher at Westmount Public School. “We are very fortunate to have the support of local partners in our community to bring unique learning experiences like this to our students.”

Carly Hughes of Wink make-up studio will lead the students in the special effect makeup session. Following instruction, demonstrations and an opportunity to ask questions, the students will practice special effects makeup on each other.

The Westmount Public School Academy provides Grade 7 and 8 students with the opportunity to learn in an experiential and rigorous environment while meeting the requirements of the Ontario Curriculum. The Lakehead Public Schools academies provide opportunities for students to participate in inquiry and/or project activities that encourage students to learn through active experience, reflect on the experience and apply their learning to various aspects of their lives.
