Welcome to Valley Watercolor Society:
San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, Southern California

behind the appeal of watercolor?  Is it the magic of layering one transparent color over another?  Or perhaps the fresh, exciting sparkle of a single beautifully laid brushstroke of color on a dappled paper surface.  Whatever the reason, Valley Watercolor Society (VWS) provides a forum for learning about and sharing watercolor painting as both a vocation and a hobby.

MEETINGS:  **New Meeting location** 

VWS meets on the second Thursday, each month, September through June, at the **San Fernando Valley Arts & Cultural Center, 18312 Oxnard St Tarzana 91356 California,** meeting starts at 7:00pm.  Visitors welcome.

Masters of watercolor provide rich and varied programs.  They tell about their personal philosophy and demonstrate water media techniques.


Several times each year, members may study with fine artists through workshops arranged by VWS.  Workshops rage from one to five days and feature teacher demonstrations with time for participants to paint and receive instruction and feedback.  Non-members are welcome..


The annual juried exhibit provides members a chance to show their best.  A skilled juror, knowledgeable in watercolor medium, selects from CD's those paintings which will be accepted into the exhibit.  Many awards are presented.

View the paintings from the "Gallery 800 Exhibit" by opening the "Artwork Gallery" pages of this web site.


Our monthly Paint Outs provide outdoor painting experiences to member watercolorists.  Some favorite Paint Out locations include Lake Balboa, Los Angeles Zoo, Descanso Gardens, Santa Monica Pier, Orcutt Ranch, Malibu Creek State Park, Leo Carillo Beach and many more around the Los Angleles area. 

Read the Newsletter for Paint Out dates and locations.

Visitors are welcome to join us.
