Southwest Washington Watercolor Society

Watercolor adventurists join together to create and celebrate art on a regular basis as the Southwest Washington Watercolor Society. Many members began painting as kids, some found this pleasure during retirement years, and some have made art a lifelong career. Where ever you are at in your creative journey with watermedia we invite you to come along with us – and get your brush wet..
