About Us

A Brief History of GCWS


GCWS has grown rapidly since its foundation in 2004. Our main purpose is to promote awareness and interest in water media painting with a focus on excellence in technique and materials, as well as encouraging and assisting water media painters to expand their skills and contacts in the arts.

GCWS furthers the interest of painters by sponsoring programs and competitive exhibits. We sponsor major workshops that are open to all who are interested in developing their watermedia painting skills. Programs presented at each of our regular monthly meetings are demonstrations by local artists or art-related presentations. We also have plein-air painting events at various locations.

GCWS members are from many walks of life. Some are practicing artists, some are practicing instructors, and some are beginning watercolor painters. We welcome painters of all skills levels who have a love of the art.
