As some of you may know I just got back from my Airbrush Getaway Class with Dru Blair in Las Vegas. I have been a fan of Dru Blair's photo realistic style of art for years. When I found out he was going to be in Las Vegas for an intro to photorealism class I jumped at the chance.
Every year Airbrush Action Magazine puts on a series of classes for airbrush artists or for any artist for that matter. These are held at various locations and for a small fee you can spend four days in a class and learn everything from photorealism art, automotive airbrushing, pin-up airbrushing to t-shirts art and so on. These are great! It gives you a chance to Brush Up on your skills or just hang out in Las Vegas with some like minded artists from all over the world.
Dru Blair's airbrush class is a favorite and man did I get my moneys worth. Dru is a fun teacher who likes to keep the momentum flowing with humor and an over all wonderful spirit about art and the business. I was surprised to see so many newbies in this class and the fact that they were getting good results as well with the work will attest to Dru and his lovely assistant Mel's style of teaching. We covered many terms on lighting and equipment used and spent grueling hours mixing colors from 9 am to almost 2 in the morning most nights. I can't wait to get out to his school in South Carolina and pursue this education further. Plus I cant wait to offer the results of my education and add some of these techniques in all my different mediums of art to you guys.
Anyone considering taking his classes should save up the money and go! Whether you are just a hobbyist or do art for a career. Like I always say, learn from the best first and proper education is priceless!
