Welcome to Watercolor Art Society - Houston

Founded in 1975, the Watercolor Art Society – Houston (WAS-H) is a non-profit organization with over 500 members. For over 40 years, WAS-H has brought the excitement of water-media to the greater Houston area with outstanding exhibitions, world-class instruction and dedicated community outreach. Year-round opportunities are provided to every level of painter, from novice to the seasoned expert. Art lovers are invited to enjoy year-round exhibitions in our gallery in the Museum District. 

In addition to Juried Exhibitions, WAS-H has monthly meetings with demonstrations by known artists. Classes and Workshops all year. Group painting encounters include Open Studio afternoons, Wednesday 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.
