Monthly Critique Group

We invite you to join this exciting new program, the “Artist Zoom Room” (AZR), a monthly online critique session where 10 NWWS members have their work critiqued by an exceptional, well-known artist. As an NWWS member, you may register to submit images to be critiqued or choose only to be part of the audience and watch. Not a member yet? Non-members are welcome to register and attend as observers.

All artists—members and non-members—may join us as we welcome Cathe Gill, artist, expressive instructor, and author to the Artist Zoom Room in February. Cathe lives her life as an artist in ways that are creative, sometimes balanced, and always fun, whether painting on location along the rivers, beaches, forests and parking lots anywhere in the NW, or teaching online from Zoom Rooms at her Ballard studio in Seattle WA. Visit her website and Store to see her 2021 Workshop Schedule, and view her book "Powerful Watercolor Landscapes", videos and dvds.

Artist Zoom Room is held the second Monday of each month.
12:30 -1:00 PST - Connect, meet & greet
1:00 - 2:30 PST - Critique

- NEW PROCEDURE: Attendees must register each month for that month’s event.
  • Only NWWS members may have their work critiqued. Non-members and members may attend as observers.
  • Once registered, you will receive the Zoom link/invitation 24-48 hours PRIOR to the event.
  • Indicate on the registration form if you’d like to be an observer or to be placed on the list to have your work critiqued.
  • Ten member artists per month are selected from the waiting list to be critiqued on a first-come-first-served basis.
    • When your name is at the top of the list, you will be contacted to submit two paintings.
    • If you can’t submit paintings when asked, your name is placed at the end of the waiting list.
    • You will have approximately 5 minutes of critique time with the critiquing artist.
    • If you want to be critiqued again, simply re-register to be on the waiting list once again.
  • If you no longer want to receive emails specific to those registered for the Artist Zoom Room, send your request to:
