National Watercolor Society
Initially conceived in 1920, the National Watercolor Society brings before the public the best of water media painting, representing a wide range of directions and technique, from experimental to traditional and encourages support for watercolor as a vital, enduring and expressive medium. Founded as the California Water Color Society, the name of the society has changed twice: first in 1967, to California National Watercolor Society; then in 1975, when the members voted to become simply the National Watercolor Society. The goals of the National Watercolor Society are to encourage interest and excellence in watermedia paintings by providing quality exhibitions and to act as an educational channel to pertinent information, exhibition opportunities, and beneficial programs to artists and their public. In addition, NWS sponsors programs to encourage and assist education in the arts.
As a professinal artist, I have the highest opinion of Liquitex acrylic colors. I have been painting with them for more than forty years, on both canvas and illustration board, and they are always a pleasure to work with. After so many years, even my earliest paintings still look as though they were painted yesterday.
I especially love the versatility of Liquitex colors. They have a consistent, buttery quality that makes them perfect for a range of techniques, from impasto "oil painting" to watercolor washes.
I periodically place large orders to Mister Art and highly recommend them for their value and service. They are a great source for many hard to find supplies, and, in all the years that I have ordered from them, they never disappoint. Also, the VIP Savings Club is a great value. I save a lot on discounted VIP prices. Thank you, Mister Art!
This EV-R-Round Circle Cutter is an awesome product. My husband was cutting circles of cork for coasters by hand and they didn't come out really round. Enter the Circle Cutter - perfect circles. Very easy to use and well made. He loves this product!! Wish he would have purchased a long time ago!!
