This is Airbrushing Evolved
Frazetta's mastery is in the design, subtle details, elegant colors, and brushstrokes that Frazetta left on the surface. Dru will teach you a variety of techniques to capture the look and feel of his work, including brushstrokes. Our methods might not always be conventional, but they get results, and that's what counts.
Making water-based paint look like oil
Dru has figured out how to simulate oil paint with water-based paint, and without even using a traditional brush! He'll show you how!
If you want to be the best you can be, you need to learn from the best.
Frazetta was the best fantasy illustrator in the world.
It's not just hype. No other artist had more influence on the fantasy art world.
Welcome to the most informative airbrush workshop on the planet.
You could spend years (or more likely, decades) trying to figure all of this out. 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.
Push your airbrush to new frontiers.
We've all seen what an airbrush is supposed to do, but what about pushing the airbrush beyond traditional limits? There's a bag of airbrush tricks that you probably weren't even aware existed! 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. These additional techniques 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 color after taking this course.

We will give you the power to re-create this style with stunning results, and at a level no other airbrush workshop in the world offers. 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.
