Watercolor Workshops. Current, Upcoming, and Ongoing.

Stephen Quiller's "Pulsating Night Sky"

Joan McKasson's "In the Country"

Bill Fravel's "Mahalo Kaui"

This week, renowned watercolor artist Stephen Quiller of Creede, Colorado is giving a week long workshop, courtesy of the Nevada Watercolor Society.

Please don't get upset because you're just now hearing about it and it's already underway. By the time the news got to us, the course was already full. That's good news for everyone but the latecomers.

But there's more good news. NVWS will be sponsoring another watercolor workshop featuring renowned artist Joan McKasson. This one won't be taking place until early September, so you've got plenty of time to sign up and get your brushes ready.

If you're interested in the Joan McKasson workshop, it will be taking place from Thursday, September 10th through Sunday, September 13th. The cost for enrollment is $200 for NVWS members and $225 for non-members. Payment may be made in the form of a check made out and sent to Nevada Watercolor Society, PO Box 27224, Las Vegas, NV 89126.

The workshop will be held at the Spanish Oaks Clubhouse on Sahara, near Palace Station, and HAA Events Coordinator Sharon Menary is the point of contact. Email her here:

Lastly, highly-decorated and newly transplanted watercolor artist Bill Fravel will be teaching classes at Henderson's Desert Art Supply on Thursday mornings, starting on February 19th. Classes will run from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm or, as some like to call it, noon.

This particular Desert Art Supply is located at 2750 Green Valley Parkway and Sunset in Henderson. There is a materials list most of whose contents can be purchased at either of the two Desert Art Supply locations (Charleston Ave and Eastern or Green Valley and Sunset). For this list and additional information, email the artist at

Each of these talented artist/instructor's work may be viewed at their sites, respectively, listed below.
