About Us

The Newton Watercolor Society (NWS) was founded in 2009 to provide opportunities for artistic development for professional and amateur watercolor artists. Our members enjoy:

  • Monthly meetings include plein air painting, visiting-artist demonstrations, and watching watercolor videos.
  • We sponsor at least one five-day workshop a year with internationally known watercolorists.
  • Our VHS/DVD lending library is available for use by all members.
  • The Newton Watercolor Society expects to organize an annual NWS Art Show.

Many of our artists are also members of the Newton Art Association newtonartassociation.com.
