Welcome to Watercolor Art Society - Houston

Founded in 1975, the Watercolor Art Society – Houston (WAS-H) is a non-profit organization with over 600 members. For almost 50 years, WAS-H has brought the excitement of watermedia to the greater Houston area with outstanding exhibits, world-class instruction and dedicated community outreach. Year-round opportunities are provided to every level of painter, from novice to seasoned expert. Art lovers are invited to enjoy monthly exhibits in our gallery in the Museum District. 

In addition to monthly exhibits, WAS-H has monthly meetings with demonstrations by known artists; classes and workshops year-round; group painting encounters including Open Studio, Model Lab, Paint-Outs and Paint-Ins; and an Outreach Program for volunteers who facilitate introduction to watercolor classes.

Our building was completed in 2006.  This building was designed specifically for the Watercolor Art Society due to some dedicated architect members.
