About the International Watercolor Society
The International Watercolor Society (IWS) is a non-profit organization which was established in January 2012 with the objective of promoting the world’s oldest and most deeply rooted painting technique; the art of watercolor. IWS was founded by Mr. Atanur Dogan. Their goal is to promote peace by the use of art; the common language of all the people of the world. Their activities involve bringing watercolor artists and art-lovers together.
ArtCenter Manatee has partnered with the International Watercolor Society (IWS) to create a Florida Chapter, one of only five branches in the United States. We are part of their worldwide network of over 100 branches, galleries, and education centers.
