New Zealand schools of Airbrush Venturi

The Team:
The North and South Island Airbrush Venturi schools are operated independently.

In the North Island the 10 Day Course, Advanced Courses and the Custom Graphics Course are offered every 6 months. The courses held at the PPG Training Centre in Mt Wellington are all taught by the founder of Airbrush Venturi, Tony Vowles.  Tony has been teaching in Auckland twice a year since 2005.

In the South Island there is a Night Course and a Saturday School.  The courses are conducted in Avonhead in Christchurch and is taught by Cameron Albon who learnt with the founder of Airbrush Venturi and then joined the Airbrush Venturi team as a regional manager and teacher.

The Local Course Structure:
It must be stressed that regardless of what course format you do, the actual course structure will remain the same. You will do exactly the same modules and be taught identical skills in all the course formats.  This gives you the freedom to choose what suits you best and not worry that one course is delivering better outcomes than another.

 We supply everything:
The courses we conduct are very intensive, and it is important that the preparation and organisation for them be very thorough.  If every student brought their own equipment it would be a nightmare to co-ordinate and seriously reduce the quality of our courses.  For Airbrush Venturi to offer the best courses possible, we must provide carefully chosen equipment and materials for you.  

* Note: Students may bring their own airbrushes into the classroom but Airbrush Venturi does not accept responsibility for the security and performance of outside equipment.

While the whole point of doing classes is so that you can airbrush at home, and will therefore need to have your own set-up there . . . it is unreasonable to expect that you set yourself up at home, until you know whether you enjoy it and feel that you would like to go on and take the art form seriously.  

By Airbrush Venturi providing everything in class, you get to try out airbrushing and then if you enjoy it, you can then take the next step of setting yourself up at home and start doing your own projects.  Airbrush Venturi does not sell airbrush equipment and materials.  While it is affiliated with Airbrush Supply Network PL, the Airbrush Venturi team only teach airbrushing.

We supply the highest quality equipment and materials you can get in the world.  We supply the worlds best airbrushes, airlines, couplings, inks, papers, masking materials; everything. This includes height adjustable easels that enable you to raise and lower you work, to set up every stroke in the best way possible.

Your fees include comprehensive course notes that build into a 500+ page manual over the 5 units of the course, the most comprehensive book on airbrush techniques you could ever wish for.  Everything is laid on, to ensure you have the best possible training experience and achieve the best results possible.
