The New Mexico Watercolor Society (in ABQ) hosts two Workshops annually (Spring & Fall) in Albuquerque, featuring a Guest Artist of significant watercolor painting skill and experience. The Guest Artist also acts as Judge/Juror for watercolor paintings submitted for the simultaneous (Spring and Fall) Exhibitions.
Our NMWS members (statewide) also participate in the Masterworks of New Mexico Watercolor Workshop with a public painting demo, each April.
As a member of the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, a collaborative set of 12 western state watercolor societies, the NMWS members are able to participate in WFWS-sponsored watercolor workshops in the host city.
