Volunteer at WAS-H

Volunteers are the backbone of the Watercolor Art Society-Houston. Without volunteers, we wouldn't be able to provide the exhibits, receptions, workshops and many programs offered at our facility. 

There are many ways to participate. See below for our general opportunities. Pick one or more and we will contact you when specific events occur to see if you can participate. For further information, contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Sally Hoyt at [email protected]

I am a Texas certified art instructor who has been out of work and out of touch with children. This could be a gentle way for me to share my expertise and enjoy children at the same time.
