Workshops

All Workshops are on Sunday, Feb 4th from 8pm to 12 midnight

PashurCyborgs
In this workshop, we will be painting a cyborg, featuring its many robotic parts and mechanisms. We will map out the design using the human anatomy as our guide. We will then shade and highlight the design to give it depth, along with adding metallic reflections and more. We will be painting on the neck, shoulders, arms, upper chest and the lower face (chin and jaw). This is a design you will follow step-by-step. This workshop is a combination of hand paint and airbrush. We will hand paint 90% of the design and then tweak with the airbrush towards the end of class to give those final cybernetic touches.

Balloons with the Terrific Triad!

Join Anthony Lena, Joe Mock, and Billy Damon for a one-of-a-kind learning experience! 

*For this Master class Billy will be teaching “Creating the moment” as well as a Peg leg Pirate, and the one and only… Elvis!

The first will be an amazing dragon! This dragon is a good balance between detail and time needed to create it. I usually make this dragon at birthdays, and it’s one of those sculptures that once one person sees it, they want it too! Just a testament to the impact of this piece!

Next, you will learn how to make an EPIC sword using the versatile V-8 weave!! We all make swords, but you should have one sword design that makes all other swords pop in fear!

*Joe will be teaching future nostalgia?!? You have to attend to see what this is about!Anthony also shares his thoughts on why this class will be worth your time: “I can’t wait to teach a class with Joe Mock and Billy Damon, two incredibly talented artists and entertainers. Joe, Billy, and myself know you paid extra for this class and we are making it extra amazing! If you are serious in taking your balloon business, your balloon skills, and yourself to greater heights… you MUST attend this class! Between the 3 of us we have over 80 years of experience with Balloon Art! By the end of this class I am certain you will have learned something new and exciting! If I wasn’t an instructor for this class, I would be attending myself! I can’t wait to see you there!”
