National watercolor society
Founded in 1920 as the California Water Color Society, its members are dedicated to a new appreciation of a medium long associated with merely sketching. The name of the society has changed twice since that time: first in 1967, to California National Watercolor Society; then in 1975, when the members voted to become simply the National Watercolor Society. Its headquarters are now in San Pedro, California and the goals of its members are quality exhibitions and accompanying educational programs and materials. ??
