Watercolor Society of Alabama began in 1939 with an exciting vision to promote, create, and inspire painters in the art of watercolor. They embrace that vision by holding juried watercolor competitions each year: WSA Annual National Exhibition , Statewide Alabama Members Showcase, and Online Showcase. They also offer workshops taught by nationally and internationally known artists. Vibrant Newsletters, published quarterly, keep members informed and connected.
