It seems like everyone in the face painting community is speaking about the International Face Painting School. You’ve probably heard about it a few times yourself, afterall you are here on the blog now! You may also be trying to make a decision between beginning the course now or postponing starting.
I’m going to try and help you with that decision in this blog post. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions and hopefully these answers will help you make the decision that is best for you.
1. Who is your instructor?
Let me introduce myself. My name is Olga Murasev (ex Meleca). I’m a professional face and body painter, and the founder of the International Face Painting School.
Over the past six years, I have created hundreds of original face painting designs, and I have traveled the world to share my art as an instructor. From Australia to the United States, Switzerland, Italy, UK, Netherlands, Russia, Belgium, Israel, Kazakhstan and more…
And now I have combined my experience and knowledge in the biggest project of my life — the International Face Painting School.
My art varies from super simple and quick designs to intricate work like this lion transformation:
You can find out more about me, as well as discover some more of my art in the About Author section.
2. What makes the School so special?
If you’re thinking that the training at the International Face Painting School is just a collection of video-tutorials, it’s not.
It is a unique online training system, which includes information equal to 30 day-long workshops, including both written text, images, schemes, animations, and video-lessons.
There are 8 steps that you will have to take during the studies to become a professional.
1️⃣ Step One: Learn what tools work the best, how to take care of them and how to make your practice safe and professional.
2️⃣ Step Two: Polish your skills by mastering specific face painting techniques.
3️⃣ Step Three: Learn 45 carefully selected designs.
4️⃣ Step 4: Perform tasks and tests to sharpen your skills.
5️⃣ Step 5: Get individual feedback (Elite feature) for your homework and improve your work under my thoughtful tutoring.
YES, it might be exhausting and I will push you beyond your limits, but I promise that you will love the result!
6️⃣ Step 6: Participate in our private group and live webinars, where we discuss additional questions, support each other and simply have fun.
7️⃣ Step 7: Get certified after taking the Final Exam.
8️⃣ Step 8: Become a professional.
3. Professional or Elite: what is the difference?
The main difference consists in the individual tutoring that I am offering during the training on Elite package. This means that I will check each of your tasks and will give you feedback on what and (most important) HOW to improve.
Sometimes you will have to repaint the same design a couple of times. Yes, I am a demanding teacher. But it’s all going to be worth it!
There are two more things that you will get with Elite package:
1) Diploma of Graduation that will confirm that you gained the Status of a Qualified Professional Face Painter.
2) e-Badge “Certified Face Painter” — Exclusive School Sign that can be used as a watermark on your artwork and on your website.
I am proud to say that we have more than 300 students from 29 countries studying at the School now / January 23, 2017.

4. How long will the studies take?
Once you enroll, the drip system will open a new Module for you every few days, so that you will have the entire Course opened within 11 weeks. That means that the minimum amount of time that you will need to complete the studies is 11 weeks.
However, there are no time limits to complete these studies.
You can move at your own pace, study the theory and perform tasks whenever you can.
There are no monthly subscriptions for this Online Course. Once you enroll, it becomes yours forever. And even more than that:
By enrolling at the International Face Painting School, you become part of a new community of professional face painters. You will benefit from all further additions to the main Course — for free and for a lifetime!
All you need is a device (computer, tablet or smartphone) and Internet connection. You can access the instructions 24/7 from any part of the world.
5. Pay in full or split in rates?
If you made the decision to join the School, but can’t afford to pay in full, choose one of our split-payment plans, starting from only 95 EUR per month.
Remember, your improvement is my main goal. That’s why I guarantee 100% money back within the 90 days in case you won’t be satisfied with these studies.
