Sierra Watercolor Society is a nonprofit organization serving the Arts in Northern Nevada and Eastern California.


SWS presents painting exhibits in public spaces throughout the year, including one annual show judged by a professional juror. Meetings for members include educational lectures and demonstrations by well-known artists. SWS's Art Angels program sends volunteers to teach art in regional elementary schools. SWS awards a scholarship to a college-bound art student.


SWS offers workshops taught by nationally recognized artists in a wide range of fields including watercolor technique, landscape, human figure, collage, design, and color theory. SWS maintains a large lending library of DVDs about painting. Members also may meet in small drawing and critique groups.

All exhibits and demos are free and open to the public. For dates, just click on the Meetings or Exhibits tab.
