“The Idea of the
program,” Davis said, “Is
to get the people ready
to work or upgrade them
in present employment.”
Besides
learning
English in the ESL
classes, the Indochinese
students also study the
Western system of math.
They learn about job ap­
plications and
inter­
views.
This term, the studen­
ts are offered an ac­
culturai segment, which
is basically a class
aimed at making them
aware of cultural dif­
ferences.
After almost a half century’s involvement in scenery.,
lighting, design and stage makeup, Kermit Shafer knows how
things should look onstage.
Teaching College students how to create characters with just
the right mixture of rouge, eye shadow and tints, is, however,
secondary to Shafer’s purpose in the “Beginning. Stage Makeup”
course here on campus.
Said Shafer, “Basics are the key to good makeup design,” and
continued that while many students have a good knowledge of
“street” makeup techniques, they have to practically relearn how
their faces really look, before going onstage.
“People, women especially, are used to making their face up so
they look like themselves, but stage lighting takes all the color out
of the skin. What stage makeup will do is bring back the natural
color that was lost, or it can be used to change the character of the
- face completely,” Shafer said.
A facial analysis'is necessary to help the student determine what
parts of the face look better than others. Corrective makeup helps
the student to strengthen weak portions and accent strong por­
tions to equalize the face,” said Shafer. “Really, what we’re trying
to do is make the person look as real as we can with what they
have,” he said.
Joette Rose, the secretary of the theater arts department, who’s
taking the course for “personal enrichment,” said she’s learned a
lot about her own face. “Just in my everyday making up before I
go to school, I’ve learned how to accent the good things and
deaccent the'not-so-good-things, the different ways you can use
an eyebrow pencil, and that rouge doesn’t always have to be used
on jiist the cheeks.”
Debbie Reinbe, a freshman at the College and a theater major
_ said, “I know what to do with my face now when it’s not being so

Although npt exactly Godzilla, students will get a chance near
