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.
I'm loving this work desk/station, and I put it together in no time at all.
The station is moveable; around the room or from room to room. The casters make it easy. That said, I have a laminate floor, and have to have the casters braced against something to stop them from rolling away with the station. If you have the same problem, you might try using the included stationary feet.
Lowering the angle of the top might catch a finger if you're not aware.
The drawers are lightweight and small, but nice to have at your fingertips. The side trays are molded plastic. Pencil sized holes work great for differing sizes of pencils, brushes and grease pencils.
I used it as a light table with a lamp under the station.It worked great.
There is a large metal "pencil tray". It's handy, but it will remind you that you should not lean on the top.
I have been using Fluid paper for a few years now and find that it's a great value for the price. The quality is suitable for beginner to intermediate level painters. Very easy to work with, accepts watercolor paints, pencils, aqua crayons and markers well.
