Painting by Marguerite Lyons

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

​The August program meeting of the Central Coast Watercolor Society will take place on Tuesday, August 30, 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 Marguerite Lyons.  The program is called "Transparency at Its Best".   She will discuss and demonstrate painting from a still life set-up as well as her 'fractured' paintings utilizing the same set-up.
