Join Isa Beniston aka Gentle Thrills to learn the basics of airbrushing! Airbrushing is a quick and satisfying way to paint clothes, fabric, vehicles, decorate a birthday cake, and paint pretty much any surface you can dream of. The only problem? Because of its versatility, airbrushing can seem a little overwhelming--there are tons of applications, various pens and paints, and no single great intro video online anywhere! In this workshop, you will get the perfect beginner’s crash course in everything you need to know about the medium.

You’ll learn about different types of airbrushing rigs, the best places to find affordable equipment, quick tips and tricks to achieve both contemporary and classic looks, tons of troubleshooting for sticky moments, and the best practices to keep you and your equipment going strong. Most importantly, you’ll use an airbrush pen to create custom garments and get a hands-on feel for the medium!

Things to Note: 
• Wear clothes you don't mind getting messy
• Bring any garment you would like to airbrush
• This workshop is open to ages 13+

You'll be getting: 
• Blank tote bags will be provided for you to airbrush
• A booklet outlining the information presented in the class
• An array of airbrushed pieces made during class 
• Isa will have beginner kits available for a great price so, if you would like, you can continue exploring the medium at home

Isa Beniston of Gentle Thrills is a Southern-California born and raised artist who has been living and working in Los Angeles since 2010. In 2014, she graduated from UCLA’s School of Arts and Architecture and spent several years teaching kindergarteners, middle schoolers, high school students, and kids in juvenile hall. Teaching kids kept her drawings fresh, playful, earnest, and colorful.

In 2015, Isa started Gentle Thrills, a fun-loving retail brand based in DTLA that blurs the line between fine art and commercial goods. Isa began airbrushing in 2015 as a way to quickly decorate tees, cashmere sweaters, canvas tote bags, and create custom pieces in the vein of county fairs and the Venice Boardwalk. Her work is worn regularly by Post Malone, was featured in Brie Larson’s Unicorn Store and Aidy Bryant’s Shrill, and is stocked in shops all over the world.
