CCM Offers Expert Guidance on Monster Makeovers

Halloween is nearly here, and if any college knows how to get into the spirit, it's the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music. After all, it wasn't long ago that CCM

opened its Studio Series with "Carrie: The Musical,"

a rock 'n' roll adaptation of Stephen King's classic horror novel "Carrie," and performed the twisted fairy tale "Into the Woods." And here's further evidence that CCM is loaded with seasonal inspiration. Kelly Yurko, associate professor of make-up and wig design, guides you through a series of

do-it-yourself monster makeovers

to give your Halloween costume star quality. Graduates of CCM's rare MFA in

Make-Up and Wig Construction and Design

program have gone on to work with national touring shows, popular TV programs and independent and commercial film companies.
