We are a regional group of watercolor professionals and enthusiasts, originally formed in 1952 and currently 60 strong. Our mission is to support and encourage the dreams of the watercolor artist, whether beginner or professional, and to have fun doing it!

We hold monthly meetings, competitions, workshops, exhibitions and one annual fundraiser. Our meetings may include demonstrations, speakers, professional or member critiques, plein air painting and seasonal celebrations.
