I have attended workshops with both artists, and highly recommend them as honest, knowledgable and willing to share their experience so that all attendees get the most from them. Most masterclass workshops that I have attended have had students of all levels - from those with only a small amount of experience, right up to professional artists. Without exception, everyone gains.
Some of my own students have asked why I would go to a workshop - I go because it is wonderful to have clear, uninterrupted time to devote to painting, and it is so valuable and interesting to hear each different Master's point of view. This is an enormous subject, and we'll be learning about it for ever.
