The Art of Darkness

Halloween University

March 6th, 2009 by Cobwebs

For those of you in the Eastern US (or those willing to travel), the folks behind the Eastern Haunter’s Convention have a new venture: Halloween University was born out of the extreme popularity of seminar classes at the convention.

The initial early demand for seminars was so strong that two divisions of Halloween University were formed: The Professional School & The Public School.

The Professional School is geared for the serious haunt professional interested in furthering his or her knowledge. The classes are more expensive to attend, but allow us to bring in some of the heaviest hitters in the industry to attend. These classes are much more specific and advanced. In additional, these classes also allow for smaller groups giving you more intimate feel and personal attention. The knowledge of the professional classes earns you credits towards your Halloween University Degree.

The Public School division of classes will cover a much broader spectrum range of classes. These classes will have a lower cost, but will still cover many of the important topics that you will want to hear. They will just be a bit broader in scope.

Many of the classes are aimed at people creating “haunts” at Halloween, but several of their offerings–such as carving styrofoam and working with Monster Mud–would be useful skills for anyone interested in doing a little dark decorating.

“Public School” classes run about $10-$25 and begin April 10. The HU is located in King of Prussia, PA, so if you’re in the area you might want to check it out.
