The Airbrush Getaway Workshop Program Celebrates 26 Years in Orlando
The Airbrush Getaway Workshops Are “All Killer, No Filler”
Interest in learning how to airbrush has reached a fever pitch. And there’s no better place to learn how to airbrush than at the intensive Airbrush Getaway Workshops, produced by Airbrush Action magazine.
In its 26th year, the Airbrush Getaway Workshops will be staged at the Doubletree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld, Monday, May 5th through Friday, May 9th.
The internationally esteemed Airbrush Getaway workshop program is perfect for beginning to advanced artists who seek to learn new skills or take their art to professional levels.
All of the one-day introductory courses will take place on Monday, and are designed to prepare you for the following four-day all-hands-on seminars: Airbrush Mastery, Power Portraits, Automotive Graphics, Automotive Murals on Steel, Plotter Mastery, T-Shirt Lettering Bootcamp, Pinstriping & Lettering Mastery, Creating Killer Skulls, T-Shirt Airbrushing for Fun & Profit, and many more. All courses are conducted by some of the top talent in the world, including Terry Hill, Javier Soto, Jonathan Pantaleon, Glen Weisgerber, Rod Fuchs, Gary Worthington, Cheryl Vaughn, Troy pierce, and many others.
The Airbrush Getaway, sponsored by Createx Colors, Iwata Airbrush Company, Anest Iwata, Artool, and Airbrush Action has launched many careers, teaching its students how to profit handsomely in art even in spite of one’s self-perceived artistic limitations. A comment echoed by many Getaway alumni is that more is learned in four days at a Getaway than in four years in college.
Joe Stanford, a Getaway alumnus from Grass Lake, Michigan, thought he had finally reached airbrush nirvana. “One day you see a celebrity artist in Airbrush Action magazine, and the next day he’s looking over your shoulder helping you! That’s priceless. A lot of people might be leery of attending a Getaway because they don’t know anyone, but it’s like you’re a part of this huge family as soon as you walk in. There are no clicks or egos. I loved the Murals class. Where else can you find all this amazing talent under one roof?”
Nicholas DelGrado, of Sanford, Florida, adds, “It was great to experience the huge pool of talent from all over the country. This is better than college because it’s geared toward exactly what I do (skulls and flames); in college you have to extrapolate bits and pieces that apply to you, and that can represent a lot of sorting.” When asked if he’d recommend the class to someone else, Mr. DelGrado responded, “Oh my god, did you see what one student did who never used an airbrush before? In the course of only four days he turned out a piece of art that was really exceptional. I would absolutely recommend that someone take an Airbrush Getaway”
Seven-time alum Shena King, of Hanson, Idaho, still benefits from the Getaway. “There’s so much information. The instructors don’t hold anything back and offer everything they know. A Getaway is absolutely the best way to learn to airbrush. Learning on your own can be so difficult because there are too many little secrets that they teach you here that would take forever to learn on your own; and much of it comes on the first day!”
Curt Bacon, of Ft. Dodge, Iowa, echoed many of the students’ sentiment. “I’ve been painting for 20 years and this class has taken me to the next level. The murals course is well, well worth the money.”
Pinstriping is another course that’s a proven hit. “It was interesting,” observed Terry Hill, “to see the strong response to the one- and four-day Pinstriping classes featuring Glen Weisgerber, a remarkable veteran talent.”
“I really enjoyed watching the progress of the students. It energizes me to think that I can impart knowledge that has taken me 25 years to learn, in a concise manner, that doesn’t require the drudgery of experimentation. It’s a proven method I’ve developed for teaching a very profitable art form. I can tell by observing a student’s body language and posture where to correct the bad habits before they become lifelong habits.”
Matt Windell concurs. “Regardless your level, you can always learn something new, especially in this great environment. I learned so much in four days.”
