Starting February 4th: Airbrush Class Series at i3Detroit

At last!  A series of airbrush courses will take place at i3Detroit, starting with the introductory class on February 4th.  Class 1 is Intro to Airbrush; class 2 is Airbrush for Murals; class 3 is Airbrush for Props and Models. More information about classes 2 and 3 will be provided soon.


The instructor, Ross Smith (yours truly) will provide students with a thorough grounding in this awesome instrument.  The types of airbrushes, maintenance, mixing paints, basic technique, and resources for more advanced material will all be provided.

Students must pay a materials cost in advance, which buys them all the basic materials needed to get started.  Equipment will be provided for students to use during the class.   (If you have an airbrush to share, please bring it!  Don’t forget your hoses and quick connect couplers.)  Please register online through EventBrite.  If you do not want to pay through EventBrite via PayPal, please contact to arrange payment.
