Dates for 2018 Announced!

This year's event was a huge success--and we're delighted to announce dates for our 2018 event now! We'll be returning April 27-29th, 2018, with great guests, demos, and workshops. Mark your calendars now--don't miss out!

Pre-Registration Closed! See you Tonight!

Pre-registration for the CONstruct event is closed! Tickets are still purchasable at the door at both Saturday and Sunday.

We hope to see all our weekend attendees and guests in attendance tonight at the European Body Art sponsored Five Palette Challenge! Watch five talented makeup artists create five unique looks using just one palette--all for a grand prize of $300+ in materials. Drinks and refreshments will be served--show up at 6 to 9 PM and mingle with our guests.

Schedule and Workshops Announced!

We are very excited to announce our full panel/workshop schedule! Please take a look at our PROGRAMMING tab for more information--and get ready to sign up for some workshops.

In addition to one-hour panels, CONstruct is proud to feature 2-hour long live demos for all of our attendees, and special workshops in our classroom space, which are extremely limited in potential attendance and require additional registration and materials fee. Make sure you sign up today!

TCS and CONstruct at IMATS

Attending IMATS NY? Make sure to stop by The Compleat Sculptor's booth and pick up information about Construct! We have handouts about European Body Art's 5 Palette Challenge and more. TCS will be at IMATS on Saturday between 9-5 and Sunday between 10-5. CONstruct guest Josh Turi will be in attendance as well at the Museum!


The Friday Night Contest

CONstruct is pleased to announce our Friday Night Five Palette Contest, sponsored by European Body Art and The Compleat Sculptor!

Five contestants will compete during our Friday, May 19th 2017, festivities, and be given one of five random palettes from European Body Art to create a look from that palette only. The look could be gore, fantasy, old age—limited entirely by the palette’s colors and the contestant’s imagination. Our Guests of Honor will judge the final looks after one hour of creation, and the winner will receive a grand prize of over $500, containing memberships to the event for the weekend and over $300 in makeup supplies from European Body Art. Interested in applying? We’re accepting applications now—click here for more information.
