Upcoming Workshop

with Waterworks Unplugged Instructor
Judy Morris

This workshop will be four days, October 22-25, 2018.
Tuition is $425 for NWWS members, $525 for non-members.



4-Day Water Media Workshop
This workshop is guaranteed to be creative and FUN!

Painting should be fun, but sometimes we get stuck and the "fun" is interrupted by an unexpected problem. Fun becomes frustration. Frustration leads to unfinished paintings that might end up hidden under the bed or at the bottom of a drawer. Let Judy show you how to create paintings that you proudly display for everyone's enjoyment. Her four-part painting process – along with her inspiration, creativity, passion, and vast knowledge of painting techniques – will make you smile during the painting process, help you create successful paintings, and rescue paintings you thought were hopeless. If Judy were to simplify her painting plan into one simple sentence it would be... "Bring your toys (watercolor painting supplies) and come play (paint) with me."

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.
