About Our Workshops

At Advanced Airbrush we run beginners airbrush courses as well as courses for the intermediate to advanced students.

As our courses are run on a more individual basis we offer more a one on one training, and will teach each student at their own pace. You are not limited to the other students and their abilities
When you come for one of Wayne's courses you will be shown on the first day what you want to
know, you dont have to do so many courses to get the knowledge your after.

Some students are artists and others have no art skills at all. We will teach you to use the Airbrush, maintain it and do special effects and tricks with the Airbrush. Also be able to produce artwork.

We teach maximum 14 students per teacher.

Wayne Harrison (Owner/Artist) has over 30 years of Automotive Airbrush experience including fine arts, Wall Art & all other forms of Airbrush art. Wayne holds a Licenced Ticket for
Automotive Art and Graphics .

Wayne's Artworks have won Awards in USA and Australia. Also his artwork has received a lot of Top awards for Top Graphics and Airbrush Art (Murals) throughout the automotive shows around Australia eg Auto Salon. Wayne has also traveled to Malaysia to teach students for a new business setting up, and will continue to support the students as required.

With our hands on teaching and personal experience in the Airbrush Field of production we are able to teach you Airbrushing for:

  • Automotive /Bike Airbrushing
  • T- Shirt Art
  • Trompe L'oiel (Wall Art)
  • General Murals
  • Hobby Airbrushing
  • Nail Art
  • Body Painting ( promotional) You must bring your own model on last day
  • What ever you wish to learn in Airbrushing Wayne & his staff can help.

5 Day Courses ( What Happens in one)
This is for the beginner to advanced student  (you don't have to have art knowledge but it does help of course when doing murals). Graphics can be achieved by anyone with the knowledge we offer. Also paint effects e.g. Water, Wood, Granite, Marble etc. This course is run on the same lines as the 2 day but allows extra days to complete your own projects (This is only allowed now in 5 day workshops) e.g. bonnets or try different avenues of Airbrushing e.g. body art, nail art, t-shirts, general murals, graphics, paint effects, automotive airbrushing etc.

A certificate is supplied to each student for resumes.

Lunch is now supplied on the last day of the workshop

For more information you can contact Wayne and also we have information for local accommodation from basic to 5 star accommodation that is local to our workshop.

2 Day Courses  ( What happens in one)
These are hands on workshops for the novice (beginner) to the advanced artist, signwriter. You will learn the basic essentials of Airbrushing and the tricks of the trade, from what ever stage you are at to the next stage.

Advanced Airbrush courses are individually designed to allow students to follow their chosen form of Airbrush e.g., Automotive, hobby, wall murals, t-shirts etc. You don't waste time learning things you really are not interested in anyway and have no intention of doing that form of Airbrushing. Weekend courses are designed for the beginner to the advanced students and the maximum number of students are 13 to a class.

Lunch is supplied on Sunday & a certificate is given to each student.

Automotive Course
Complete a 2 day workshop on a weekend  or 5 day with us or any other teaching group and you 
can join one of our Automotive workshops. First sets of dates are posted. You will be
not working on learning how to use an Airbrush but you will learn how to apply graphics, use stenciles, prep of your work,  the proceedure of Automotive Airbrushing correctly and safely.

Here is a copy of an email received from Matt who attended a workshop by Advanced Airbrush:

To: [email protected]
Subject: Workshop - Thankyou

G'Day Joanne and Wayne,

Great to meet you both on the weekend at the course.

Many thanks to Wayne for his guidance and for teaching me the techniques I needed to complete my project over the weekend. The course was fantastic and I can definitely recommend it to everyone I know that airbrushes. I got so much out of the weekend that all I can think about now is to go out in my workshop and start airbrushing....Anything !!. Just want to airbrush something and work on my skills and the skills that Wayne taught me.

Also want to thank Wayne for giving me more confidence in airbrushing as well, as that is something that I know I lack. But once I got started, I forgot about everything else, even lunch, until Wayne asked if we wanted to eat lunch. But really, the course was great and I enjoyed myself immensely. Wayne is an awesome airbrush artist and a great teacher and I feel that I am privileged to have met him and done one of his courses. He has now given me the bug to airbrush and also something (his artwork) and someone (himself) to aspire to be like. I will definitely be doing more courses in the future. I want to be able to produce something to enter next years Airbrush Expo competition.

Many thanks


Letter received from Rob:

Hey Wayne and co.

Want to say thanks mate, I gained a lot from your workshop in Brisvegas and I am really keen to get into airbrushing a lot more. Many people asked me why I needed to go to an airbrush workshop and to be honest I had to wonder about that myself. I hoped you could unlock some tricks for me, make the whole process easier somehow and guess what, you did just that! Now I approach airbrushing with a lot more confidence, freehanding without tiresome masking makes the whole process so much easier , quicker and enjoyable.

The first project I am tackling is a portrait of each of my kids.......oh shit! look what you got me into!! I'll attach a piccie of the portrait I crash tackled at your workshop, I'm bloody proud of it, (My son Rob is rapt in it, he even forgave me for destroying his CD cover)...

I look forward to doing another workshop in the future, there is always more to learn.

Thanks for spreading it around.

Rob Clark
