The purpose of the New Mexico Watercolor Society is the elevation of the stature of watercolor as an art medium and the education of the public as to the significance of watercolor as an important creative permanent painting medium. The ultimate goal is to make New Mexico known nationally for its watercolorists.
All individuals interested in watercolor media are invited to join the NM Watercolor Society and participate in our regularly scheduled educational and social events.
