The Central Coast Watercolor Society (CCWS) was founded in 1976 for the purpose of furthering interest and appreciation in the watercolor medium.  It is an independent group of artists, collectors, teachers, students and anyone interested in watercolor and water media.  We are located on the beautiful central coast of California in San Luis Obispo County.  CCWS holds a general meeting each month at 6:30pm at the United Methodist Church, 1515 Fredericks Street, San Luis Obispo. All meetings are free and open to the public and routinely host guest artists, demonstrations, and lectures suitable for all levels.

The July 26, 2016  meeting will start at 6:30 pm with a social time and the demo starting at 7:00 pm. 

​The July program meeting of the Central Coast Watercolor Society will take place on Tuesday, July 26, 2016, in the Wesley Room of the San Luis Obispo United Methodist Church (1515 Fredericks St, SLO).  Social time (6:30 pm) will be followed at 7:00 pm by a presentation by Michael Grahek, who paints with both watercolor and ink together.  For a dozen years, he studied with Milford Zornes—recognized as a leader in the California Style watercolor movement—traveling with him on painting excursions to Spain, Cuba, Death Valley, New Orleans, Utah and Arizona.  Grahek’s presentation will explore the benefits of using a limited color palette to add excitement to paintings.

The Tuesday, July 26, 2016 meeting will start at 6:00 pm at The United Methodist Church at  1515 Fredericks St., San Luis Obispo, CA 93405.
