This demo sharpens your appetite for Iain's 5-day workshop. In his own words, during the workshop, "students will follow Iain in group demonstrations. The class setting is very relaxed and accommodating to all quite often with a broad mix of experience and skill levels represented. Most importantly, Iain allows as much time as possible for one on one instruction and critique. After all a workshop should focus on the student and not how well the instructor can paint. In the end it's about you and your experience and whether it will help you to continue on your artistic journey."

We always wish for more time with these artist masters. One day whets our appetite. Two days give us skills and a greater hunger for experience and time to develop real familiarity and competence. Five days--a whole work week! That's a perfect amount of time to move personally to a new level of expertise and personal development--to speak more fluently with the brush and color those stories in our hearts and minds.

Georgia Mansur is a trained and certified Golden Artist Educator and an Official International Ambassador with Daniel Smith, with her own 'Georgia Mansur Palette' of watercolours and has lots to share with you ~ what's new, what's possible, and where the realms of watercolour and acrylic overlap or diverge.

As a watermedia specialist, Georgia works in watercolour, acrylics, mixed media and water-soluble oils. Demystifying the new technology, showing you step by step how to incorporate these techniques and tips into your own work, you will learn what works from Georgia's experience and training and come away with some new ideas!
