Salminen crowd 2

NorthStar welcomes new members any time of the year! We are confident that joining NSWS is beneficial to artists with all levels of expertise. Even if you are not a painter, but love watermedia art, you will be rewarded by attending our meetings and events.

Already a NorthStar member? Each September begins a new year for NSWS, and renewal has never been easier!

NorthStar has an on-line membership form that allows you to join and pay your dues with one simple form. It only takes a couple of minutes to complete and helps NSWS to maintain green, efficient, and accurate records. We strongly encourage all members to use our on-line form by clicking the link below.


Membership dues: $38 for a year; $38 for signature membership; $66 for a 2-person household; $10 for college students. The membership form includes options for paying your dues, including a secure on-line payment system through Square.

If you prefer, you can print and fill out a paper copy of the membership form. A link to the new membership form is below, and forms will also be available at our monthly meetings.

NSWS is a volunteer organization, and only you, our members, can continue to make it the vital, exciting organization that it has been for so long. There is no paid staff at NSWS, so the information you provide us on your membership form will help us to offer the right experience to the right member. Consider saying “I will” when asked at a member meeting to volunteer for a specific opportunity. It’s the greatest way to become friends with exciting, interesting people who share your love – art.
