It’s no secret how tough it is out there today, with so many jobs being outsourced and downsized in this troubled economy. But I’m happy to say that the art of airbrushing continues to prove a viable career across a wide spectrum of professions including automotive custom painting, body art (spray tanning, Halloween gigs, airbrushed makeup, airbrushed tattoos, etc), T-shirt airbrushing (about 30 years ago I made thousands of dollars working fairs, flea markets, and street feasts with my shirt business), portraiture and more. And that’s why I’m so proud to offer courses by some of the World’s best artists at the Airbrush Getaway workshop program, giving students hands-on instruction and a professional-caliber skill set in only four or five days.
The next Airbrush Getaway takes place at the New Tropicana Las Vegas in October 8-12, and offers 5 one-day classes, including Intro to Airbrushing class and 13 four-day classes, including Airbrush Mastery, Ultimate Airbrush F/X, and Achieving Photorealism (for the entire lineup go to http://airbrushaction.com/airbrush-getaway-workshops/vegas-october-8-12-2012). Celebrating its 24th year, the Getaway is truly a one-of-a-kind event, and the world’s best airbrush immersion program ideal for artists and non-artists seeking to learn new skills or take their art to professional levels.
The Airbrush Getaway has attracted students from all over the world and from corporations as diverse as Disney, AT&T, Boeing, Texas Instruments, Hallmark and many others, freelance artists, small business owners and students of all skill levels
Students 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. A special comradery and bond develops between students and staff at every Getaway.
If you or someone you know is frustrated by the shrinking job market, maybe it’s time to look toward a new career or lucrative side gig in airbrushing. Hope to see you there!
