With our workshops, you'll not only be able to render more accurately, but you will understand what you re seeing more clearly. .
Not problem. Even if you are stuck in a rut, we'll show you how to prevail in even your most challenging paintings.
This is Airbrushing Evolved

Welcome to the next level
Imagine being able to create paintings with surface textures so real that people mistake your paintings for photographs. We'll show you how!
If you want to be the best you can be, you need to train with the best.
Why not train at the best airbrush school
in the world?
It's not just hype. No other airbrush school delivers as much content as we do. That's why the best instructors from other schools and universities train here.
Welcome to the most informative airbrush workshop on the planet.
You could spend years (or more likely, decades) trying to unlock all the secrets of surface textures. Now it’s possible for you to reach your artistic potential in a fraction of the time that it would take if you tried it on your own.
Light physics that solves all your surface challenges
Besides mastering reflected light , you will also learn all about radiosity, depth of field, subsurface scattering, and refraction. This knowledge will help take your painting to the next level!
The tools you need
Knowledge is the most powerful tool we give you, but we aren’t just limited to teaching you all about straight airbrushing. We include a variety of other tricks to help you make your present and future artwork the best possible. This will allow you to create amazing special effects of transparency for glass and water effects, for example.
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
1. You could give up on your dreams and continue doing what you are doing, but let's be frank. You would not have continued reading up to this point if you wanted that. 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.
2. You could try practicing on your own hoping to figure it out someday. Its very difficult and time-consuming without all the shortcuts that we could show you, but its an excellent choice if you have all the time in the world.
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 the ability 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 the world after taking this course.
Painting true to life textures
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.
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.
