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.

October 31, 2017 Meeting - Potluck Dinner and a 1 night Members Only Show. Bring 1 of Your Paintings to the October Meeting for a Master's Critique by Ruta Saliklis.

​One way to raise your art to a higher level is to open yourself to a valuable piece of criticism from a person who has credibility with you.  You want more than an opinion, you want  because you trust their eye for art.  Each painting entered into  this Members Only One Night Show will have a critique by a true art professional.  Ruta Saliklis who is the Curator and Director of Exhibitions for the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art will provide an critique of all the art entered.  This program is structured to help all artists attending by providing feedback from someone you want to learn from and someone you respect.

The Halloween theme evening will be kicked off by our earlier than normal social time at 6:00 pm. 

The potluck dinner will be from the members who are asked to bring a main dish if their last name starts with "L thru Z". Names starting with "A thru K" are asked to bring salads.  Desert will be provided. If you have special drink requirements please bring your own.  Plates, utensils ect will be provided.
