Hawai`i Watercolor Society


The Hawai`i Watercolor Society was founded in 1962 by Hawai`i Artist Hon Chew Hee. Our aim as an organization is to nurture and stimulate interest in water media through education, exhibits, and collaboration with other organizations, associations and individuals.

The Hawai`i Watercolor Society sponsors two juried exhibits every year as well as a biennial curated show highlighting the work of our signature members. In addition, we host periodic sales, themed shows and community events.

In conjunction with our exhibits we offer two week long workshops each year featuring nationally recognized teaching artists. On an intermittent basis we sponsor shorter duration workshops on a variety of art-related topics.

We are honored to have Jean Pederson for our workshop this year. Jean promises to deliver an exciting learning experience with lots of experimenting.  Please take a look at her blogspot with links to many articles on the "how-to" approaches to watercolor and mixed media applications. Jean has a style that translates to figure, landscape and abstract. She will jury the Spring Show, so please submit your artwork by February 6th for Jury. We are so fortunate to have Jean Pederson with us. She is thorough in her critiques, provides a slide presentation to enhance the learning experience and encourages creativity using a broad array of mediums not limited to watercolor.
