WELCOME!

The Idaho Watercolor Society is a group of people who share friendship, encourage personal growth, give support to one another, and organize wonderful events. Anyone can join; you do not have to be an artist.

The Society sponsors a range of activities statewide: exhibitions, workshops, paint-togethers, social get-togethers, holiday parties, and educational programs where beginning artists can learn and grow. There is also the opportunity to just volunteer and be involved with a variety of activities. Get involved and start benefiting from membership in this creative community.

Mission

Our mission is to promote and support the use of watercolor media and to educate the public as to the significance of watercolor painting.

The Society advances the interests of painters in watercolor and water media through its programs, workshops, and exhibits.

Join Us

We would love to have you join us in our fun and supportive community of water media artists. Membership is $40 per year, or $45 per year if you would like to receive a paper copy of our newsletter rather than the emailed version.

Volunteer

The Society sponsors a wide range of activities across the state, including exhibitions, workshops, paint-togethers, social get-togethers, holiday parties, and educational programs where beginning artists can learn and grow, and seasoned artists can explore new techniques and contribute their talents to better the organization. Volunteer and get involved.
