Leonard Engelman - Director Emeritus

Leonard Engelman is Director of Education Emeritus at Cinema Makeup School. He was the first makeup artist to serve as a Vice President on the board of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (AMPAS) and is currently an Academy Governor for the Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Branch.

Leonard has been a key voice on behalf of makeup artists in the film and television industries for over 50 years. His work with such luminaries as Cher, Sylvester Stallone, and Val Kilmer has captivated audiences for just as long.

Although he has stepped back from daily duties at CMS, Leonard is deeply involved in the school’s various mentorship and industry outreach programs and still teaches honors workshops for current students as part of the Leonard Engelman Fellowship.
