The Metropolitan Room supports and offers introductory, beginners and continuing educational classes for the arts and for public consumption.  We are associated with several programs that are conducted by professionals in their fields.  We are continually improving and expanding the breathe of the program.

Pin-Up Classes with Bettina May >>
  • The original body-positive class that got it all started. In this 5- to 6-hour class you will learn how to do simple 1940s- and 1950s-inspired makeup and hairstyles. Bettina May or one of her talented assistants will do your hair and guide you through makeup application. Once makeovers are complete, she will show you how to strike a pose with confidence, followed by individual pin-up photoshoots shot by Bettina May herself. This class is open to women (or those who dress as a woman, i.e., drag queens, trans people, etc) only, and always takes place in a location that is closed to the public for the duration of the class, so attendees feel safe and comfortable. Unless notified otherwise, you are responsible for bringing your own makeup and outfits for the photoshoot.
