NWWS Workshops
NEXT WORKSHOP: Birgit O’Connor – April 27-30, 2020
The Northwest Watercolor Society hosts two 4 day workshops every year. Each workshop accompanies the opening of one of our major exhibitions: the Annual International Open Exhibition or Waterworks Amplified, our membership exhibition. Internationally known artists and instructors who jury the exhibitions are well known for providing excellent instruction in water media.
NWWS workshops can include up to 22 participants and are hosted in a wonderful, spacious venue. Snacks and beverages are provided. For workshop information contact Workshop co-chair Minh Rosen at
NWWS is very proud of its workshops and we are especially proud of the talented artists invited to join us in Seattle to judge our exhibitions and teach our workshop participants. Each artist/instructor is uniquely qualified and well known in the international artist community, and we are lucky to have them as creative partners.
We welcome Birgit O’Connor, MCWA, NWWS, LWA as the next NWWS workshop instructor. The workshop is from Monday-Thursday, April 27-30, 2020. Click here for workshop information.
