    I recently graduated from Artists Within after taking the Makeup Diploma, Airbrushing and Advanced Makeup Diploma. I am so grateful for the everyone there, it really was the best choice! I didn't realize how much I would learn when I started. Each course went into a great deal of detail and I left feeling sure of what i needed to do as an artist but also as a business woman! I have started a great client based business that although slow during Covid I know will bounce back. I'm also so glad for the makeup kits we received with each course. I didn't need to run around getting what I needed as it was all thought out for me. Until today I haven't needed to add anything which is great as I have lots for student loans to pay off! Thanks Artists Within, I would highly recommend to anyone :))

    Best Choice!
