PPG Custom Painting Classes
PPG sponsors a number of Custom Painting Classes on various topics and techniques. Click here to view course descriptions and prices of commonly held airbrush classes. Also view the locations where you will be able to find these courses. Classes usually involve some travel so if they are too far away, keep checking periodically to see if they show up on the Orlando or Atlanta course schedules. Be prepared to spend some bucks as Custom classes often run $250-500, but you will also receive an Iwata airbrush when you attend the Custom Airbrush class.
Note that you cannot attend one of the Advanced Airbrush techniques courses unless you have taken the standard Custom Airbrushing course first. Bring your Iwata with you.
