Winning in Vegas — Attend the top hands-on airbrush workshop featuring the world’s best instructors.

Power Portraits

“I come every year. I really integrate a lot. I combine handbrush, airbrush and digital techniques. Power Portraits shows me tricks I can do with an airbrush that I can’t do with any other tool.” —Power Portraits student and artist Daniel Bieda

Creating gorgeous, photo-realistic portraits is the secret to earning big money. Artists at any level who wish to learn this highly regarded skill need to come to Vegas this fall. That’s when the Airbrush Getaway will conduct the Power Portraits workshop featuring new head instructor Javier Soto of Javier Designs. The class will focus on subjects including image transfer, color mixing, mastering tonality and color gradation, along with transparent and semi-opaque techniques.

Celebrating its 24th anniversary, the Airbrush Getaway, produced by Airbrush Action magazine, will be staged at the new Tropicana Las Vegas Hotel at 3801 Las Vegas Boulevard S., Las Vegas, NV from Monday, October 8, through Friday, October 12.

Javier Soto has been involved with Power Portraits for years and this will be his first year as lead instructor. “The first thing I tell students is don’t worry about making a mistake,” said Soto. “The first time they make a mistake and we show them how to fix it, they realize that this is the learning process. They relax and begin to learn from each other’s mistakes.” Students will learn techniques that usually come from years of experience in four short days and will complete projects in black and white and color.
