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 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.

Though the pandemic precludes an in-person workshop for the Annual International Open in 2020, NWWS is partnering with Ron Stocke, NWS, AWS, NWWS, CSPWC, to bring an exceptional learning experience to a limited number of students.
Ron’s warmth, immense talent and dedication to teaching will shine for this four day, interactive workshop, Oct. 26-29, 2020. And all from the comfort of your own, personal studio setting.

Registration Is Now Closed.

Thank you for your interest in signing up for the Ron Stocke Online Workshop. The workshop is now full. Please email if you would like to be placed on the wait list. We will notify you if a spot opens up.
Thank you.


We listened to our members' feedback, and, beginning in 2020, NWWS will change the order of our Annual International Open Exhibition and our Waterworks Membership Exhibition. From 2020 on, the Waterworks Exhibition will be held in April and the Annual International Open will be held in October.
