FX Classes now Taught from My New Studio!

It has been an exciting start to 2011 so far, and I am proud to announce the new location of Kosart Effects Studios, my very first studio space outside the home! It is an awesome 2,600 square foot gallery/studio/workshop located in Westmont, IL, and I am excited for this giant leap towards my creative future, and future of Kosart Effects Studios! Once things get in order, with the gallery and studio all set up, I will be having an Open House & Gallery Exhibition sometime in the next few months, so keep posted!

However, beginning this upcoming Saturday, April 2nd, Kosart Effects Studios is proud to present its first FX Course: The Art of Mask Making sponsored by Blick Art Materials and Zagone Studios. The second course in May (TBA) will be "The Art of Make-Up FX."



The Art of Mask Making (April 2011):
In this course taught by artist J. Anthony Kosar, you will learn the professional process on how to design, create, and finish your own latex half-mask, beginning with character/creature concept design fundamentals. Next you will learn sculpting techniques used by FX masters in the industry, how to properly mold your sculpture in stone, and how to cast your mask in rubber latex. Finally, you will learn various professional approaches to painting and finishing your mask for display, portfolio, and for wear. This course will consist of lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on learning. Be prepared to take notes.
