SWS sponsors water media and related workshops throughout the year. Recognized artists from around the nation are brought to Reno to teach classes, which are available to members and non-members. Fees are very reasonable. Registrations for each workshop opens three months prior to the workshop. At that time the cost of the workshop is established and announced in our monthly newsletter. Signups open on the day designated in the announcement.

Eva Stramer Nichols Demo
Spend a fun, energetic and COLORFUL journey with Eva!
January 13, 2018
1PM -3PM

Eva S. Nichols is an award-winning watercolorist & instructor best described as an "impressionist colorist" inspired by nature. She strives to convey a mood and a feeling with her color choices, not necessarily to match exactly what she sees, but colored by what she feels. You can always recognize her use of bold colors and unique compositions. Even though watercolor is her preferred medium, Eva likes to work in mixed-media collage and acrylics as well.

In 2009-10 Danish born Eva was an artist in residence at Mendocino Art Center, which started her career as an art instructor. She has a unique ability to inspire students to explore their creativity and grow artistically. Since moving to Truckee, CA in 2010 Eva has won numerous awards, and she was awarded Community Education Instructor of the Year 2013-14 by Truckee Meadows Community College.  She is a member of The Sierra Watercolor Society as well as the ARTisan Shop at North Tahoe Arts in Tahoe City, CA and several galleries in California, Nevada and China represent her.

Eva spent the Month of March 2015 as an Artist In Residence at St. Mary's Art Center in Virginia City, NV and teaches watercolor workshops both near and far. Eva is still an avid traveler, which is evident in her latest work.

Michael Reardon Demo
Registration opens for Michael Reardon on December 1, 2017.

Workshop: March 7-9, 2018
Demo: Saturday, March 10, 2018

Members: $220 with $110 deposit
Non-members: $280 with $140 deposit

From Michael: "I focus on landscape painting, with each day having a theme. On the first day I typically focus on mixing greens. On the second day I focus on composition. On the third day I focus on putting it all together. Each day begins with a demonstration. The rest of each day the students paint from their own photographs while I give individual attention and instruction. The day ends with an informal review."

WORKSHOP FEES &  PROCEDURES

1. The deposit must be paid in order to reserve a seat. Because we need to make a commitment to our presenters 30 days prior to the workshop, if  you wait until after 30 days prior to the workshop, it could be filled or cancelled. Signups are taken first-come first-served and workshops are limited to 20 attendees. Make checks payable to SWS & send to Treasurer, Sierra Watercolor Society, PO Box 70564 Reno NV 89570 to reserve your space. Include your mailing address, email, and phone number. Gina Lijoi will send out the supply list about three weeks before the workshop.

2.  While non-members are charged a higher fee for our workshops, for $30 you may choose to become a member thirty days prior to the opening of registration. You would then be eligible for the member rates for this and all current year workshops.

3. Workshops must be paid in full 30 days prior to the first session. 

4. Up until 30 days prior to a workshop, if a member or non-member must cancel his reservation, he will be refunded his deposit. After that time, monies paid will be refunded only if the organization has a waiting list for that particular workshop and is subsequently able to sell the seat. If no waiting list exists, the person wishing to cancel would then have the option of providing his own replacement. If this occurs, a refund will be issued.

5.  All workshops are held at Temple Sinai, 3405 Gulling Rd., Reno NV 89503, from 9 to 4 each day.
