The art of prosthetics with PSU’s Megan Westhoff

Jesse joins professor Megan Westhoff at Pittsburg State University to learn the art of stage make-up and prosthetics.

Megan first learned how to do stage make-up when she was in college before taking a break for some years. She didn’t pick up the art until she started teaching at Pitt State when she was tasked with doing make-up for local disaster drills.

She uses her students for these local disaster drills because she sees it as the perfect learning oportunity. The students make the make up and act the part of the injuries.
