Ohio Technical College To Feature Airbrush Show at World of Wheels Event in Pittsburgh

CLEVELAND, Jan. 18 -- Ohio Technical College (OTC) will take its "Evolution of Life Fuel Your Future Road Show" - a custom airbrush demonstration that tours high schools around the country - to the Championship Auto Shows' World of Wheels event at the David Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pa., Jan. 22, 2010-24, 2010.

OTC's airbrush road show features a 75-foot tractor trailer that the school has transformed into a mobile classroom complete with practice airbrush stations and school videos.

Famed professional airbrush artist Richard Markham, who is an instructor for OTC's Custom Paint and Graphics program, will give live airbrush demonstrations as he paints the outside of the tractor trailer rig and shares details of the school's 12-week course that teaches airbrushing, 3-D paint effects, exotic paint, chameleon colors, flames and pinstriping. Markham's famous custom cars "The Devil's Ride" (1934 Ford 3-window Coupe), the "Ice Car" (2000 Toyota Celica) and the "Pumping Iron" (1932 Ford) will also be on display for students to check out during the event.

Students who come out to the World of Wheels event will have the chance to win one of 14 scholarships that will be given out by OTC, who has partnered with Championship Auto Shows to encourage high school students to consider jobs in the automotive industry. Additional activities throughout the weekend include Airbrush tattoos, Matco tool giveaways and Weekend Airbrush Class giveaways.

"This event is an excellent way to not only share our school's unique Custom Paint and Graphics course, but also to showcase the wide variety of technician training programs we offer ranging from Auto-Diesel and Classic Car Restoration to PowerSport Technology, Alternative Fuel Vehicles and more," said Tom King, director of enrollment management at OTC. "We are committed to providing students with the advanced education needed to secure exciting, rewarding jobs in the automotive industry."
