In keeping with our pledge to bring the best instructors in the fields of decorative painting to Orlando, we have decided to follow the stellar workshop we just completed from Simon Pasini with an equally amazing artist - Dru Blair. This class will enhance the portfolios of not only current airbrush artists, scenics and automotive painters, but it will enhance any decorative painter's trompe l'oeil, mural or canvas work.

  • Dru Blair's Foundations Class

    Considered by many in the industry to be one of the best airbrush artists in the business, Dru Blair has a talent virtually unriveled in the area of hyper-realistic art production. His work is often mistaken for photographs due to his precision and skill with details on the most minute level. Fortunately, this is a skill he is willing to share and quite capable of conveying. He will be teaching an all-day, hands-on workshop at The Paint Factory Orlando on August 20th, 2011 that will cover the basics of what it takes to see objects the way he sees them and how to put that vision out via airbrush. This class will be covering multiple aspects necessary to acclimate students with Dru's methods for airbrushing and creating "dead-on" color matches. Tuition is drastically reduced for this workshop to $175 for the day. All materials and tools will be provided. Registration can be handled by clicking the PayPal Button Below...

    Dru Blair Hyper-Realism

    Portrait Workshop

    Dru Blair will be doing a full-on portrait class similar to the portrait paintings shown above from Wednesday through Saturday (August 24-27th, 2011) following his other workshops at the Paint Factory. This culmination of all the skills taught in the other two workshops he's teaching prior will certainly present the crowning-jewel to any airbrushing portfolio you may be either assembling or simply looking to expand the scope of. This class does require the knowledge taught in the previous two workshops (listed above) as it will move at a VERY accelerated rate. Dru is the type of instructor who will spend the entire evening with a class, if that's what it takes to get their work completed. Do not miss this opportunity to work side-by-side with a master of his craft in the heart of Orlando. Attractive Class Discounts are available when combined with either or both of Dru's other two workshops listed. Feel free to call or write with any questions or to register.
