American Watercolor Society
The American Watercolor Society held its first exhibition, as the American Society of Painters in Water Colors, in the fall of 1867, and has continued to hold annual exhibitions to the present day. In 1878, the name was changed to The American Water Color Society, and the Society was incorporated in 1903. AWS was established at the cusp of watercolor's emergence as a popular medium in fine art, rather than just a sketching tool. Since its humble beginnings, AWS has actively promoted watercolor and the artists who work in the medium. On occasion, the Society has also selected an outstanding artist or individual who has contributed to the advancement of fine art in general and watercolor in particular. This person is so honored by receiving the highest AWS honor, the Dolphin Medal, at the annual awards banquet. At the 100th Anniversary exhibition of the AWS, sponsored by and held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1967, AWS president, Mario Cooper, proclaimed: “It is the hope of The American Watercolor Society that the present exhibition will make the public more conscious of the long and continuing tradition of the art of watercolor painting in America" ... a statement which remains true to this day.

Latest Product Reviews

It took almost 2 months to ship; that is why the 3 stars. I teach at a University, and we wanted a solid easel that could hold up the abuse of students for years. This is definitely a strong easel, and it seems like it will hold up to the test of time. The top portion of the easel allows you to hold paintings at an angle so you decrease reflection of the surface which is nice... but it takes a little bit of time to get used to adjusting it to hold the canvas well. I would buy another one (or 30) if they would have shipped in a week or two. The easel itself gets 5 stars.

I apply these paints in small plastic bottles and add a metal tip to outline and apply. The only thing I dislike is you never know which color will change to a different color after baking. Mostly I use the Pebeo 150. I find they do not change color after baking. Another problem is they do not have it in white,first time I used what looked like white, it turned ivory and even looked more yellow than ivory. I just wish there were more art suppliers who carry it. Most of the time I order it.

I used Porcelaine 150 about 14 years ago on some glasses; they have been washed over and over in the dishwasher, and the color is still bright and beautiful. I did bake them in the oven as the directions specified. This is a great product!
