Mission

The mission of the Illinois Watercolor Society is to advance the education and caliber of watercolor painting throughout Illinois. We hold monthly meetings and demonstrations and host two annual shows. We invite you to attend the next meeting and meet some of the society members, or to join us. All are welcome.


Welcome to a new year at IWS. We are hoping to hold our meetings in person at Oakbrook Library beginning in April, 2022. We will have both the IWS National Show and the Members’ show this year.


We are seeking people to assist the IWS Board. If you would like to help with the annual Members Show, IWS Facebook page, or IWS website please contact Membershow@illinoiswatercolorsociety.org.
