This manuscript proposes a way of coordinating a schedule with airbrush metaphor and builds a proof-of-concept system. Its design and a brief demonstration are presented, and an experiment in usability is conducted. The result shows that the airbrush metaphor is capable of expressing ambiguity of schedules and effectively applied to a way of coordinating a schedule.
