main_fit_300Friday from 6:30 PM to 8:20 PM at Michaels The Arts and Crafts Store at Dudley Farms Plaza in south Charleston, area artists interested in learning how to use an airbrush can take a beginner’s class from Rob “RJ” Haddy, the famed FX make-up artist, seen on several seasons of the SyFy competition show, Face Off, who is a master of this fine art tool, with his own signature line of airbrushes. Tuition for this class is $75, which is a bargain for this kind of comprehensive workshop.

Let’s see what it says on the Eventbrite page: “Join RJ for this incredible 2-hour event where he will take you through the ins and outs of using the external mix  Paasche H airbrush.  In this 2 hour class RJ will be illustrating how to take care of and trouble shoot an airbrush, different kinds and brands of paint, exercises to build your skill with the H, and how to use stencils to create amazing works of art on any thing from paper, to Halloween masks, props, and of course t shirts! Everyone that comes to the class will receive a coupon good for ten dollars off any Paasche product RJ sells.  We will also compare and contrast the two different styles of airbrush single action, and double action, and help you figure out which airbrush is right for you! Please note, the airbrush is not included in the price of this workshop.”

Open to ages 12 and up, RJ’s class is a great introduction to any artist interested in using an airbrush, who wants to learn the basics and try it out before taking the plunge and buying one, and the airbrushes RJ offers for sale are some of the best that you can buy. Micheals is located at 214 RHL Blvd in South Charleston, right next to Books A Million.
