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. 

Although we are unsure as to when the gallery will reopen, there are new opportunities involved with the online gallery and online class functions.   Hopefully, we can resume in-person activities in addition to our online functions in the latter part of our fiscal year,

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]
