Are you totally
Perhaps you realize that you are
capable of greater paintings, but
you haven’t quite figured everything
Feeling like your portraits could look better?
You aren’t alone. Most artists reach a certain level, but don’t know where to go next. You try experimenting, hoping to stumble across real answers, but you aren’t satisfied.
Eventually, you realize that it's going to take years to figure everything out, and with NO guarantee of success. In the meantime, you STILL aren't getting paid what you are worth.
Do you want your portraits
to be true to life?
Perhaps you are tired of seeing all the amazing art posted on social media, and want to create something equal to or better than, the best that’s out there.
Welcome to the Next Level

We make portrait painting simple, easy and clear. That's one of the many reasons we are considered the best airbrush school in the world.

What you will learn
What students are saying
I attended Dru's workshop with the hope of learning to paint, I left with the ability to "see" and a system that allowed me to develop my own understanding of painting and colours. Your system has given me the freedom to explore my own creativity.
Dru's teachings showed me how to create great detail and gave me the ability to achieve PHOTOREALISM in my artworks. Thank you for pioneering the world of photorealism in airbrushing, I doubt I would have got here without your long nights and many experiments .
Dru's workshop influenced the way I paint and gave me some new concepts, knowledge and skills to implement into the way I worked today I recommend it!

Why should you take this class? Consider your options:
Option 1. You could give up on your dreams and continue doing what you are doing, but let's be frank. No one wants to spend the rest of their life wondering "what if?" You are here because you believe that you deserve to be a better artist than what you are now. You aren’t the kind of person who’s going to settle for mediocrity.
Option 2. You could try practicing on your own hoping to figure it out someday. It's very difficult and time-consuming without all the shortcuts that we could show you, but it's an excellent choice if you have all the time in the world.
Option 3. Enroll in this course and enjoy the benefits of step-by-step guided instruction. You get what you need without wasting years or possibly a lifetime of guessing. If you don’t have time to travel to our workshops, try our Classroom in a box series and learn from home.
We are so sure that we offer the best airbrush course in the world that we are willing to offer you tuition money back if you don’t notice an immediate improvement in your art, and in the way you see color after taking this course.
Creating true-to-life portraits
You will learn a lot of techniques in your workshop, but the most valuable lesson gained is for you to better understand and see the world differently, especially when it comes to color. We will give you the power to create or re-create reality with stunning photorealism, and at a level no other airbrush workshop in the world offers. A photorealist painter can easily paint in any style, from abstract to impressionist, and even mimic the old masters' paintings. The choices are limitless. As artists, we take our inspiration from the visual world around us and re-create it on board, metal, or canvas. At the Blair School, we would like to show you how to do it more successfully.
We offer a virtual online option for this class via Zoom available during this workshop. We have an amazing presentation camera that transmits the lesson up-close in high definition so you can follow every step of the way. Click here for more info about the virtual courses.
