Notable artists of different genres are invited to demonstrate their techniques and processes in front of WASA members and visitors for approximately an hour after the general meeting.
Members are encouraged to ask questions and discuss the methods and processes being used to further their knowledge and skills.
Artists often show different stages in their process of completing a work and bring along several examples of their paintings and artwork for display and possible sale.
WASA uses a top of the range sound system. A wireless 'hands free' head microphone is used. The audience also has a wireless microphone to ask questions, so the session becomes interactive.
Demonstrators bring examples of their work, paintings for sale, flyers, cards to promote their classes and exhibitions.
