This lesson is focused on stage makeup application for Horror and ZOMBIES (yes, you read that right!) It gives your students an opportunity to be stage make up designers. A brief history of stage makeup is included for the teacher to instruct through slides as well. Students in art classes, drama, and gifted students love this lesson. Although this lends itself to Halloween, the lesson can be taught most anytime.

A teacher could assign this lesson to students distance learning. #DistanceLearningTPT

Students learn about:

  • Warm Up Game--"Lean and Leave" (MY version)
  • The History of Stage Makeup (separate file of Power Point slides & teacher's lecture notes)
  • Teacher's Script--what I say and how I say it
  • Procedure
  • History of Zombies (yes, there is one!)
  • Materials List (with suggestions which can be purchase inexpensively)
  • Source & Video link list (various Zombie tutorials, etc.)
  • Female makeup template
  • Male makeup template
  • Theatre Quote page--great to use for discussion and/or bell ringers

Every class is different, however this is a winner with my students.

Created by an award winning veteran drama teacher of 38 years. Enjoy!
