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.

Thanks to Sean Butler for the helpful and positive critique last night. ... See MoreSee Less

Hello Watercolor People!
It’s time to bring ONE of your winter paintings to the next meeting of the MVWS: Monday, March 12, 7-9, at Disciple Christian Church, 565 Boardman-Canfield Rd (224), Boardman OH 44512

Acclaimed artist Sean Butler will be doing a critique; you can bring as many paintings as you like to share with other members, but we ask that you bring ONE, only, for critique. Remember that we went to ONE because we’ve been getting such a good turnout that two paintings each was the equivalent of a marathon race for our critiquers!
