The Airbrush Getaway workshops will offer Achieving Photorealism, Dru Blair’s groundbreaking and highly intensive hands-on four-day course, October 9-12, at The New Tropicana Las Vegas. Achieving Photorealism will reveal the secrets of painting photorealistic fire, ice, metal, water, glass, fur, flesh tones, and many other subjects that often challenge artists. Open to artists (and non-artists) of all skill levels, including beginners, students will learn to quickly match colors with extreme accuracy and precision. The color theory taught in this class is in no way limited to just airbrushing; it crosses over to every aspect of life where choosing and/or manipulating color is important.
Students will also learn how to master color, transparent versus opaque painting techniques, understanding white and the impact it has on images, the 8 rules of photorealism, the 12-point photorealism checklist, how to really understand light, how to survive catastrophic painting errors, how to develop observation techniques that will allow artists to expand their visual discrimination, and much more. Course tuition is $575, and includes all materials, supplies, and equipment. Group and "buddy" discounts are available.

About the Airbrush Getaway:
“The Airbrush Getaway is a one-of-a-kind event—the world’s best airbrush immersion program,” explains Cliff Stieglitz, Airbrush Action’s publisher. “It’s ideal for artists and non-artists seeking to learn new skills or take their art to professional levels.” Students from all over the world come away learning how to make thousands of extra dollars airbrushing, and many claim that what they learn in four or five days at the workshop would take years to learn on their own. “We’ve worked hard to develop our exceptional faculty,” Stieglitz explains. “All our instructors are at the top of their field. A special comradery and bond develops between students and staff at every Getaway.”
