In 2004, a small group of artists joined together bound by their love of the watercolor medium. The group grew into the Delaware Watercolor Society an organization with members from all walks of life.

The Society’s mission focuses on exploring, creating, and sharing the wonders of watercolor and other water-media with new, emerging, and professional artists. Membership is open to all individuals 18 years or older, regardless of residency.
