The Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society is the only organization in the Tri-state area that focuses exclusively on water-based painting. Although watercolor is the primary paint, members also use gouache, casein, and acrylic on surfaces such as paper, Yupo (a plastic product), board, canvas and hand-made paper. The art might be brushed, sprayed, poured or printed onto the surface.
Begun in 2002 with the intent of offering a gathering place to paint, the organization quickly grew from 29 members to over 100. Annual workshops, exhibits, and tours are available to members for $45 annually. Over 50 percent of the members consider themselves advanced artists.
The watercolor society offers painting demonstrations followed by open studio painting, the first Wednesday of March through December at at the Cincinnati Art Club,
