Horror MAKEUP for Haunted Houses:
Save time and money when making up the actors for your haunted attraction by learning the tricks of lighting and shadow in this step-by-step, hands-on horror makeup workshop by World Champion body painters, Nick and Brian Wolfe.

The Davis Graveyard FOAM Craftsmanship:
In this workshop, the focus will be jumpstarting an existing cemetery with a collection of foam based props, such as tombstones, a weathered wood coffin and several monuments: the essentials for a picture-perfect cemetery. Learn all about crafting believable props out of foam with experts Jeff and Chris Davis of The Davis Graveyard.

Haunt DESIGN From the Inside Out:
The original Hauntrepreneur, Leonard Pickel, will explain how he uses storyline, lighting design, soundscape, realistic sets, uncomfortable spaces, unexpected high-startle scares, timing, order of rooms and location of scares to create a roller coaster of thrills for haunt patrons. Students will leave the class with a floor plan that they created during the workshop.
