The Mahoning Valley Watercolor Society was founded in 1982 by eleven area artists; their goal was to encourage local watercolor painters.

The Society provides watercolorists with a place to share work, to learn more about watercolor technique, and to get information about watercolor-related events in the community.

The MVWS donates to the Ohio Watercolor Society and contributes prize money to local and state shows.

Meetings are held at 7:PM on the second and fourth Mondays of September, October, November, January, February, March, April.The Society meets once a month in May and December. No meetings are held in June, July, and August. See Meeting Schedule for specific dates.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Here’s a post-Thanksgiving treat for all of us.

Don’t miss the Monday, November 27th MVWS meeting. Lynn Rosati, a long-time MVWS member as well as an OWS signature member, will do a demo.

Lynn always teaches us something, and in this November demo, she has a special focus. She recently attended a Mary Whyte workshop on painting portraits, and she will share her experiences as well as her talent.

As usual, the meeting will run from 7-9pm at the Disciple Christian Church, 565 Boardman-Canfield Rd (224), Boardman OH 44512

NEXT MVWS MEETING-Monday, Nov. 13th, 7-9.
It's time for a critique. Tom Antonishak, a multi-talented and nationally known artist will critique our paintings. Here's our new plan for making critiques a little less stressful and insuring every work gets equal time.
You may bring as many paintings as you want for others to look at, but you must choose ONE and only ONE painting for the critique. This should present our visiting artists with a less daunting task, and should still satisfy our desire to have others see what we're doing . Many of us use critique nights to push ourselves, and we don't want to lose that extra nudge to create.
