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 completing work and bring several examples of their paintings and artwork for display and 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, making the session interactive.
Demonstrators bring examples of their work, paintings for sale, flyers, and cards to promote their classes and exhibitions.

Watercolour - Mix Media - Abstract
I grew up on a farm in Dudinin, a wheat belt township, where I could explore and roam as a child. This upbringing greatly influenced my artistic perspective, and I feel fortunate to express myself through painting. I studied art and design at West Coast College of TAFE, and to enhance my skills, I attended summer school at Charles Sturt University in Bathurst multiple times. Top Australian artists mentored me in watercolour, acrylic, and mixed media. Always eager to learn, I regularly attend workshops and demonstrations.
I've shared my knowledge by teaching watercolours part-time at Claremont School of Art and conducting workshops in Moora and Beverley. Additionally, I've given demonstrations to various Art Societies in Western Australia.
