Our Mission

Elevating, educating and encouraging through the magic of watermedia!

The purpose of the Tennessee Watercolor Society is to elevate the stature of watercolor and educate the public to the significance of watercolor as an important, creative, permanent painting medium. The organization’s purposes are to further the interests of painters in all watermedia through programs, competitive exhibits and workshops; to encourage the study of watermedia by art students and others engaged in the medium; and to support all the visual arts.

We often receive requests for information about watercolor artists, who may or may not have been members of our society, usually requesting valuations. This is beyond the scope of our organization and expertise. As a volunteer managed society, we do not have the resources to respond to these requests.
