October 8-12, 2012 in Las Vegas, NV
Artist Has a Real Passion for Fine Lines
The ultimate hands-on art courses, Introduction to Pinstriping and Pinstriping Mastery, taught by Mr. Styles, gives students from around the world the chance to learn the strokes necessary to becoming a skilled pinstriper. The one-day class (October 8) provides an excellent foundation for the subsequent four-day Airbrush Getaway workshop classes held October 9 through 12 at the NEW Tropicana Las Vegas, 3801 Las Vegas Boulevard South in Las Vegas, NV.
Mr. Style’s exceptional talent comes through in all his work—in this case, as a wonderful instructor. His teachings will provide artists with an important foundation toward pinstriping mastery. Detailed information on the paints, brushes, solvents, tapes, and surface preparation necessary for proper pinstriping, as well as the practice and completion of basic designs with and without a pattern, will be covered. Students will also learn both primary styles: nostalgic dagger and scrolling.
In addition to Airbrush Action, which regularly showcases his fine work, Jeff has been published in leading auto industry magazines, Hot Rod, Classic Trucks, Truckin’, and Street Rodder. His TV work includes Overhaulin’, Rides, the Speed Channels’ Street Tuner Challange and a Magnaflow Exhaust commercial.
Jeff also credits his “mentor” Butch Tucker for “taking him under his wing and teaching him everything he knows about pinstriping.” Like most artists, Mr. Styles had an eye for one thing in particular and that is flames. “The days of doodling flames on all my school books paid off,” he explains. Now a Southern California resident, he operates Styles Pinstriping where he has built an impressive gallery of work.
Airbrush Getaway workshops have attracted students from corporations as diverse as Disney, AT&T, Boeing, Texas Instruments, Hallmark and many others, as well as freelancers, small business owners and students of all skill levels.

About 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.”
