Honors and Scholarships

The Ohio Watercolor Society bestows a number of awards and scholarships every year to deserving artists and has awarded more than $260,700 to Ohio water media artists and institutions since 1978 through exhibition prizes and scholarships funded with the generosity of individuals, corporations, and art material suppliers.

OWS educational efforts include providing scholarships to promising high school students and donating to their respective art departments, publishing a quarterly newsletter, and conducting demonstrations, lectures, and critiques throughout the state.
