Our program is one of the few programs of its kind in North America and the only one in the Ontario college system. Coursework was developed specifically to meet the needs of employers such as museums, amusement parks, exhibitors and the entertainment industry. Through intensive lab experiences that simulate industry settings, you'll gain solid knowledge in casting, molding, sculpting and developing prosthetics, props and animatronics. Classes include both classroom theory and extensive hands-on lab work. Guest industry speakers regularly visit class, providing excellent networking opportunities. The Special Effects Makeup, Prosthetics and Props program is located at the Trafalgar Road Campus in Oakville, Ontario.
