This water based media Georgia Mansur workshop will give you the tools to take your art to the next level. The most compelling art touches people on an emotional level, and so she will help you to access the power of your creative voice.
Georgia – whom students have nicknamed “The Art Whisperer” – feels painting is about communication. Painting is about story-telling in order to convey how the subject makes you feel. Putting your emotions and mood into the painting makes it very personal and moving. She will help you express your creative passions and help you to develop a deeper connection with yourself and with nature, and will help you to find your strengths and identify areas that need development.
Georgia Mansur Workshop – What people say:
Thank you SO much for the wonderful doors you have flung open for me … anything is possible … the sky is the limit you have convinced me that I am in that doorway, and stepping out. You ARE a radiant treasure and I am so grateful to you for your belief in me. Thank you, personification of positive!
Watercolour and Acrylic paints and mediums will be used in this workshop both in studio, on location as well as in our sketchbooks. Georgia Mansur is a trained and certified International Golden Artist Educator and so she will demonstrate and explain all the tools and gear she uses personally.
The group will develop expressive pieces of art depicting simple but powerful messages drawn from the endless range of human emotions and how we respond to the stimulus before us. So many wonderful subjects to paint and explore in Italy!
International Award-winning artist Georgia Mansur grew up in California and moved to Australia in 1984~ now living on their family vineyard in Mudgee.
Mansur travels and teaches about 8 months of the year and has been Artist in Residence at Hamilton Island, Great Barrier Reef, AIR at Cable Beach Broome, and teaches painting workshops all around Australia from Katherine, Northern Territory to Nowendoc, NSW as well as around the world, including the USA, France, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Mexico, NZ and the UK.
Georgia is well versed in all media but prefers painting in watermedia for ease of travel, clean up and immediate visual feedback. She has a passion for painting en plein air (outdoors). Plein air painting is fast, fresh, and exhilarating~ the goal being to capture the essence of the scene before you amidst changing light, weather and not always pleasant conditions~ something only the heartiest of painters can manage. Mansur has competed in International plein air events in the USA and was recipient of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Assoc of the Walker Scholarship for Excellence. Mansur has been a faculty member and presenter at the International Plein Air Convention in Monterey, California in 2015, Tucson Arizona in 2016 and will be presenting ‘Watermedia For Newbies’ in San Diego CA in April 2017.
Georgia feels painting is about communication~ not so much a photographic copy but more story telling and how the subject makes you feel~ putting your emotions and mood into the painting and making it very personal and moving. Students have nicknamed Georgia ‘the Art Whisperer’ because she helps them express their creative passions and develops a deeper connection with themselves and nature.
