Our hope is that each of you be inspired to grow as Artists by setting some personal goals to:
Enthusiastically participate and energize yourselves in our meetings through fellowship with other artists, watching the morning demos, and attending afternoon workshops.
Learn at least one skill from each of our featured artist and try it at home
Attend at least one afternoon workshop and follow up with practice
There are opportunities for members to be entered in a drawing at the end of the season for a $200 scholarship to your choice of one of Cheap Joe's Workshops.
Each afternoon workshop participant will be added to the drawing.
If you bring a guest to the meeting, you will be added to the drawing.
Guests are welcome to attend one meeting free. When new folks decide to return, we ask that they become a member.
Did you know that The High Country Water Media Society has an endowment? Our club has been building this fund since 2005. Activities have included:
In 2018 HCWS hosted the NC Watercolor Society reception at The Florence Thomas Art School in West Jefferson and funded the $700 Third Place Award in its annual state show.
We have granted monies to many other non-profits, including the Watauga County Public Library, the Project on Aging, and The Children’s Playhouse.
Our endowment is housed in the NC Community Foundation, which allows us to have non-profit status. If you would like to know more about how to make your own tax-deductible contribution to our endowment, see our web page – or call me, Bettie Bond at (828) 264-4275
