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. 

We are open but there are still issues with COVID.  We have a mixture of online and in-person activities for which we need volunteer support.  There will be added volunteer opportunities once we are fully functional at our gallery home.

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]
