About Our Workshops
PENRITH - BRISBANE - PERTH
At Advanced Airbrush we run Beginners courses as well as courses for the Intermediate to Advanced students, and cater for all ages from 14-99. As our courses are run on a more individual basis, we are able to teach each student at their own pace - you are not limited to the other students’ abilities. When you come for one of Wayne's courses you will be shown on the first day anything you want to know.
Airbrushing is something everyone can learn to do. We have students with disabilities, learning issues; we only need to be advised so we can work to these students’ strengths. Of course, the more artistic skills you have the more you understand the structure - but all the information can be learned. We teach you how to use the Airbrush, how to maintain it and how to do your own special effects and “trade” tricks with the Airbrush. You will be able to produce your very own artwork. We teach maximum 14 students per teacher.
