The Virginia Watercolor Society’s mission is to foster the advancement and study of watermedia painting. VWS’ definition of watercolor includes painting with water-soluble media: watercolor, acrylic, casein, gouache, and egg tempera on paper or Yupo. Just as serious as their pursuit of watermedia art, is their unwavering VWS commitment to reach out to others, educating the public about watercolor painting, supporting new art projects, and helping student artists through scholarships.
