Special thank you’s to Ms. Rebecca Frye, our guest educator this week for our Advanced Makeup Artistry class! We were so blessed to have her hear all week sharing her talents with our class! She told me yesterday when she returns home Friday to Massachusetts she will be working makeup on the set of Johnny Depp’s newest movie, Black Mass. Her website can be found at http://www.rebeccarachael.com/ . What an amazing person and awesome individual! I was honored to meet and spend a few minutes with her, can’t wait until she comes back for the next class!
Wednesday, May 21st will be our Bring A Friend to School Day. If you are a student and have a friend or family member that is interested in becoming a student of International Academy, bring them to class with you Wednesday. They can shadow you in class and see if a career in the Beauty or Wellness Industry is for them. They can also have the opportunity to meet with Financial Aid to discuss what Financial Aid they may be eligible for.
Everyone is welcome even if you don’t have a friend or family member attending. Just call admissions at 386-767-4600 ext 224 or 231 to let us know you will be coming and you can spend the day in an International Academy classroom to observe the class and explore your career training options.
Lunch at noon for everyone!
