The WAS-H classroom & gallery are open at select times. Please read our COVID policy HERE prior to visiting in person. Our virtual classes and online shows continue, and are filled with opportunities for learning and exhibits.

WAS-H hosts two major workshops each year with visiting artists. The workshops are held in conjunction with the Annual International Exhibition in March and the Annual Members Exhibit in October. The visiting artist is also the juror for the corresponding exhibit.  

The benefit to members is a nationally known artist comes to WAS-H so members don't need to travel to take a workshop from a favorite artist. On occasion, WAS-H is able to secure additional visiting artists to offer a workshop in another time of the year.

Artist Statement

Visual story telling and attention to detail is my impetus in my career as a designer and continues to be the driving force in my work. My background in architecture and design, passion for travel, study of various cultures, and ongoing interest in botany influences my creative process. I've worked in a variety of mediums, but the lyrical nature of watercolor captivates me like no other. I'm inspired to push the limits of the medium to create bold and dynamic stories.
