President's Message

With summer just around the corner, the weather is warming up and it’s time to grab your easel and paints and head outside. There is plenty of opportunity to paint and we would love for you to share them with us. If you are out and about post it on our social media pages. Facebook has a great NWWS Members page where we have painting challenges and postings about upcoming classes and workshops.

Instagram is another, hashtag #northwestwatercolorsociety. It’s just another great way to share your work with our worldwide membership. We are very active online so don’t be shy and let’s see your paintings.

Our May, General Meeting will be held at Daniel Smith Headquarters in Downtown Seattle and will feature Carla O’Connor. She is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society and The Northwest Watercolor Society and is an AWS Dolphin Fellow. We will be streaming LIVE on Facebook starting at 7:00 PST.

If you haven’t had the chance to see the 78th Annual International Open, please do so. It will be at the Mercer Island Community Center from April 16 through June 1, 2018.

This summer we have a few events planned for those of you wanting to paint in groups. First, we are once again doing our “Pop-Up”painting events. If you are going to be anywhere painting and you would like some company, post it on our Facebook and/or Instagram page and get a group together. It’s as easy as that.

Finally, we are working hard on a few improvements, stay tuned for a fresh new look from NWWS!

Che Lopez, President
Northwest Watercolor Society
