October 8-12, 2012 in Las Vegas, NV
Airbrush great Terry Hill, one of the most recognized names in T-shirt airbrushing, captivates students
A Chinese proverb holds that “the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.” Similarly, an old airbrush proverb holds that “the quest for airbrush mastery begins with a class taught by a legend.”
The ultimate hands-on art course, Introduction to Airbrushing, conducted by airbrush icon Terry Hill promises to accelerate the skills of new airbrush artists and provide 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.
Hill is a true pioneer in the airbrush T-shirt industry, and as head instructor he’ll put students through the paces with drills, introduction to the various types of airbrushes, maintenance, air sources, safety issues, painting surfaces, preparation, and much more.
Mr. Hill transcends T-shirt airbrushing, and he’s one of the most recognizable names in the industry. Based in Destin, Florida, he has been airbrushing for more than 30 years, and is a frequent contributor and editor to Airbrush Action magazine, and a vital fixture of the esteemed Airbrush Getaway workshop program. Cheryl Vaughn, Hill’s assistant, is a skilled airbrush make-up and T-shirt artist.
The 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.
The cost for this one-day course is $150, and includes all supplies and equipment. One day courses include Introduction to Airbrushing, T-Shirt Lettering Bootcamp, Airbrush Tattoos, Intro to Pinstriping, Intro Murals on Steel, and Intro Automotive Graphics. Four-day course include Airbrush Mastery, Ultimate Airbrush Effects, Automotive Graphics, Achieving Photorealism, Power Portraits, Automotive Murals on Steel, and others.

Former Student Quote:
“It’s so professional, so well done. I’d never held an airbrush before, but these folks instill the confidence.”

“Our Getaway is the world’s best airbrush immersion program.”
—Cliff Stieglitz, Airbrush Action’s publisher
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.”
