We start with teaching - the basics to advanced special effect techniques. We have over twenty years in the Art and Design business, so inevitably, we also provide art lessons along with the airbrushing lessons.†
The Lessons: We start the
lessons by giving you a rundown on the mechanics of the airbrush, by taking it apart and assembling back together again. We will provide some practice,
finger exercises to start with and how to hold the airbrush for maximum
comfort and effectiveness.
You will also learn to work with and cut and make your own shields and patterns (friskets) to save your self money. We will also cover the various types and sizes of airbrushes along with various air-source options. And finally, we will discuss the assorted paints to work on various surfaces from - airbrushing on metal to - T-shirts, leather and walls.
And finally we provide phone support, and discuss trouble shooting and how to avoid the pit falls and frustration while beginning to airbrush.
Normally, we tailor the sessions/lessons towards the interest of the student i.e., working on special specific surfaces like airbrushing on textile, T-shirts, cloth, shoes and leather jackets - to working on glass, mirrors, metal to create special effects and flame techniques on, motorcycle tanks, cars, vans, airplanes, etc...
We use Paasche airbrushes, but there are a variety of other brushes available.
Support:after the Lessons: Normally we can assist you with trouble shooting over the phone even if it is not one of our brushes. This is because they all work on the same principle and are similarly built. We are also familiar with other airbrushes in various sizes. If you have questions - we have answers. We have manufacturer's catalogues so we can discuss the various options of airbrushes that may suit your particular directions.
PRICE: The cost is $260.00 for six hours. (Group prices are available). When possible, we break up the six hour course in to 3-two hour sessions. But to accommodate our occasional, out of town visitors, we have done the six hours in one day, and two days. We provide all materials including, airbrushes, air supply and paints.
