“Painting with watercolor gives me joy because of its transparency and because each painting is an adventure. It is a pleasure and a privilege to be involved with this organization because it is a friendly and nurturing environment where ideas are shared and we can grow as artists.”

“Watercolor has become my medium of choice because of its delicacy, glow and flow. My affiliation with the Saint Louis Watercolor Society has allowed me to grow as an artist with all I have learned through their workshops,  meetings,  and knowledge so freely shared by their members.  Being a part of this wonderful organization is very rewarding”

“As a member of Saint Louis Watercolor Society I have gone from being someone who loved watercolor to becoming an aspiring watercolor artist.  At every watercolor society meeting, we are reminded of the purpose of the SLWS to advance, encourage and enrich artists through education, exhibits and workshops.  With the encouragement of society members, my love of watercolor as an enjoyable avocation has become a passion.   It is an honor to be part of this artistic community.”

“I have practiced watercolour for more than three years and it has steadily become a passion for me as I feel it brings positive emotions of all kinds. Becoming a member of the SLWS has been more than helpful as the monthly meetings and workshops permitted me to meet very nice people and great painters. I also started experiencing the Plein Air Painting which I enjoy a lot. Being a new member of the board is an honor and I look forward to being more involved in the society.”
