Welcome to the South Australian Watercolour Society Inc. Website 

Our mission is “to promote the practice and enjoyment of watercolours”.

SAWS was founded in May 2012.

Membership of SAWS is open to anyone with an interest in watercolour painting.

Many of South Australia’s top artists are included in our ranks.

Ours is a non-restrictive Society.  We welcome novices and accomplished artists alike.

The Members’ Gallery displays a sample of the work of some of our members.

Every member can have their work displayed here and they may alter the content when they wish.

Just contact webmaster@saws.org.au or speak to a Management Committee Member.
