Canada, like many countries now has it's own branch of the International Watercolour Society (IWS). Many other countries (e.g. Spain, US, Italy, Greece, France, etc.) already have chapters.
This is a different kind of watercolour society. It is not meant to compete with other, already established local societies or associations, but rather to unite them. The goal of the IWS is to promote universal peace and love through art, and to promote the medium of watercolour. As such a society, it is friendly, and networking, festivals, exhibitions and workshops on an international scale are the primary ways it aims to go about achieving that goal. For more information about the IWS, please visit their new website: www.internationalwatercolor.com or their Facebook page.
Many chapters organize wonderful exhibits and workshops. Sign up with your local chapter.
The festival in Aiguillon ends tomorrow.
