Sponsored by NWWS

The Northwest Watercolor Society hosts two 4-5 day workshops every year. Each workshop accompanies the opening of one of our major exhibitions: the Annual International Open Exhibition and Waterworks, our membership exhibition. Both exhibitions are juried by internationally known artists and instructors with a reputation 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 chair Molly Murrah at workshops(at)

NWWS is very proud of its workshops and we are especially proud of the talented artists who choose to join us in Seattle to judge our shows 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.

Below is a list of the workshops we have scheduled:

Linda Baker   Waterworks Unplugged 2018 October 22 - 25, 2018
Don Andrews   79th Annual International Open Exhibition   April 22 - 25, 2019
