One of the primary functions of SDWS is to inspire and assist those who would like to add artistic beauty to our world though creations using watermedia.  The World of Watermedia is filled with inspiration both past and present, near and far.  as well as virtually.   This page will include events, travel log captures and sources of inspiration for our members available virtually.

Discovering Watermedia Art in our Travels

As our members travel, they often bring back wonderful images of art captured along the way.  We created the "Go, Look and See! " page for our members to share these images with other members. Just send an email to webmaster@SDWS.org and attach one or two .jpgs of your favorite artwork captured in your travels with a little information about the trip and your discovery. 

Discovering Virtual Sources for Inspiration

As a service to SDWS members and San Diego's art community, SDWS has initiated this list of other organizations that share our love of art. This list will be an organic information source to assist our members who may be visiting other parts of the Watermedia World and would like to contact other societies and artists. As SDWS learns of new organizations and obtains contact information, this listing will grow.  We will also contact each organization listed to offer reciprocal contact information for SDWS.  It is our hope that using the list we will be able to assist our members in their continuing desire to learn and experience more art.  The following table was originally assembled and has been updated by Brian Meyer, a local watercolor artist who has provided SDWS members with these links.

If you know of an organization that you think should be on our World of Watermedia list, please forward their URL to webmaster@SDWS.org.
