Create a beautiful work of art!
"Stargazer" will help you understand how to create a realistic nighttime ocean scene of a star-filled sky featuring a beautifully rendered, colorful, Milky way galaxy. Through the use of our custom designed, high-resolution, stencils you will paint the "Lady Washington," a tall ship featured in the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean." set against the the beauty of the night. Freehand, blending, and stenciling techniques will be taught.
You will use multiple techniques with the airbrush, included tools, and even household chemicals* to create a realistic and convincing nighttime scene that never could have captured as perfectly with a camera.

Why Dru Blair?
Just ask our former students. We have trained over 9,000 people since our airbrush school was founded 20 years ago, and we are proud to be considered the worlds best airbrush school since we opened. Almost all of the worlds best instructors train with us. We developed many of the airbrush techniques currently used all over the world.
Dru Blair teaches his subject in his popular Photorealism workshop which starts at $975. Our Classroom in a Box projects offer unlimited review for a fraction of the price. Not only will you save hundreds of dollars, you will have the luxury of working at your own pace and in your own comfortable surroundings. You won't even need to take time off from work, book travel and lodging, or get a sitter for the kids or pets.
Classroom in a Box kits make it easy to learn many of the techniques that Dru Blair teaches in his workshops in the privacy of your own home or studio. The kit comes with all the materials you need to recreate the project as shown. All you supply is your own airbrush and air source.
As paints and tools can be reused with many projects, you may purchase this and other Classroom in a Box projects without paint or tools to reduce your costs. Classroom in a Box makes it possible to enjoy a Dru Blair Workshop for a fraction of the cost of enrolling at his school!
Even if you have taken this workshop in the past, now you have the opportunity to purchase this kit as a refresher. If you have never attended a Dru Blair workshop, this is a great first step to gain insight about what it is really like to be in his classroom.
While its true that nothing beats hands-on, one-on-one training for learning, we realize that its not always possible to travel to one of Dru's workshops.
That is why the Classroom in a Box kits have become important to many artists who strive to improve their skills and bring more realism to their work.
The kit includes access to video content, featuring step-by-step instruction about how to use supplies and tools.
The reference photo is produced on a high resolution Giclée printer.
Usage rights are included with the Classroom in a box, so purchasers can paint this image again and again, royalty-free. Usage rights of kit materials and videos themselves are non-transferable, and distribution of the kits, videos, and/or their content to the public is prohibited without written consent.
Some students have even sold their art created with the kit for more than the cost of the kit itself.

This is a full workshop project from beginning to end - Just like being in the classroom with Dru teaching! You see the project as a first person viewer. The camera is positioned in front of the instructor, not over the shoulder, so you will see the project develop as Dru's eyes would see it.
