We will be working on a simple composition that can be interesting to beginners and experienced painters alike. Karen will provide a blue print for everyone to learn how to get started and what kind of methodical steps to take to create interesting compositions with vibrant, luminous color. Pennsylvania Watercolor Society will provide the necessary materials for each person who attends to take home a small painting, which will show their accomplishment in this mini course. We will talk about the chemistry of pigments, watercolor papers, brushes and other materials that most watercolorists make use of. There will be plenty of one on one assistance and answers to everyone’s questions. This is a “Don’t Miss It”event. PWS will bring everything you need except your curiosity and enthusiasm to try something new.
Our mission is to encourage, promote, and enhance water media painting on paper through the education of the artist and the public.
Pennsylvania Watercolor Society's Community Outreach
The Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, in conjunction with our mission of “Encouraging, promoting, and enhancing water media”, a few years ago created an Education (or Community Outreach) category in our annual budgets.
Over the past few years, PWS has sponsored a Senior Art Class, 4 Children's Educational Grants, and donated Art Supplies to Children's Hospitals.

Summer 2017 - Adams County Arts Council Children’s Grant
The PA Watercolor Society Grant helped to support the 11 visual arts camps scheduled this summer. Each camp met for 3 hours per day and ran 5 days. A total of 101 children benefited from all of this fun, from 5 to 14 years old, and 44 (44%) of those students were from low income families and so attended for free.
