Virtual workshops

Airbrushing Evolved: 
Introducing virtual workshops



If you'd like to take a workshop, but cant attend due to a sold-out class, limited funds or Covid-19, then we have a solution for you. 
We realize that not everyone can attend a Dru Blair workshop, so we will bring the workshop to you, in all new, real-time, online, interactive 4-day and 5-day workshops.

How it Works

Simply select virtual workshop upon checkout, and we will ship you the reference photo, Blair airbrush paper, small tools, and any stencils needed (make sure you provide accurate address information). All you need to supply is your own airbrush, air source, and Createx Illustration paint. If you don't have paint, we can offer a Createx Color Wheel paint set as an add-on.  Oh, you will also need a computer with a good connection to the internet. 

This is a live streaming event, and is not recorded, so you don't want to be late for class if you want to get the most out of the experience.

How to view

We use a free program called Zoom for our live streaming workshops. It is available as free app via the Zoom website.   You can watch it without the free Zoom app, but we recommend that you install the free Zoom app.

Approximately 1 hour before the class goes live at 9:00 am Eastern Standard Time, you will receive an email with a link and password to access the site. You can click on the link and enter a waiting room until the workshop begins. You will be able to see the step by step lessons, slide shows, and hear everything in the classroom. 

Cost savings

Not only is tuition $200 less than the regular in-person course, but there's no room and board or travel expenses, which are often more expensive than the cost of tuition. Our students spend, on average, $2,300 to attend a workshop. Foreign students spend well over $3,000.  With online classes, you can attend virtually for less than $1,000.

The Equipment

We are fortunate to have a state-of-the art high-definition presentation camera system that is mounted directly on Dru's station for the class. This not an over-the-shoulder viewpoint, but directly in front of the artwork. The image is broadcast to your computer via Zoom software, and you can follow along, listen in to the class, and ask any questions directly to Dru while you work.

The Workshops

Due to bandwidth considerations, only certain types of workshops are candidates for online learning. They include Charleston portrait and wildlife workshops, and Surface Masters workshops..

Physical Location

The classes will be held at the Blair Center for the Arts, 1125 Bowman Road , Unit #100, Mt Pleasant, SC 29464

Foundations Workshop

Some classes are preceded by a Foundations workshop, and will be offered virtually for some of the Workshops held in Charleston, SC. 
There will be no materials mailed for the Foundations workshops, but we recommend that you obtain 6 or 7 sheets of copy paper, a pencil, and some masking tape. Some hot press illustration board or Blair Airbrush paper is also recommended, although it is not essential to the workshop.
