We have partnered with the Port Aransas Art Center and the Galvan House to begin watercolor mini-workshops.  These mini-workshops will be a great way to get together and paint. The mini-workshops will cost a $5 donation per student made to the Port Aransas Art Center.

Here is the upcoming invited workshop schedule. I am very excited and humbled to have such talented artists that include Vladislav Yeliseyev, Eugene Gorean, Frank Eber and Andy Evansen to come and teach their interpretation of watercolor painting and techniques. If you truly want to improve your painting and drawing skills and learn different techniques mastered by these wonderful artists, I highly suggest signing up for these workshops.

Plein Air Painting

The WSST is introducing a Plein Air gathering now every month.

Our next Plein Air meeting is in Port Aransas and TBA . Please go to our facebook page if you are interested.


Our 51st members exhibition was being held this year at the Port Aransas Art Center with the showing through the month of August 2021.

This event will be an ‘on-line’ submission and will be judged by Andy Evansen.

This year will mark our 51st Anniversary as a society!  We plan to have the event both online “virtually” and in-person for those who live in the area.  This will allow both our out-of-town members to enter their works and local members to showcase their work at the Port Aransas Art Center.  

All works this year will be judged ‘virtually’ by Andy Evansen.  Acceptance of art work will begin on JUNE 1st, 2021.   The deadline for submission is JULY 17th, 2021.  All works (2 per member) should be sent as a high resolution digital image.    

A web page has been set up  for both submission of works and  the entry fee to enter the exhibition.    All entries will be viewable and for sale on our website with 40% proceeds going to the Art Center.   

In-person art drop-off will be August 1st from 10-12pm at the Port Aransas Art Center.  We ask that all local members who are participating in this year’s exhibition hang their work for sale at the Port Aransas Art Center.  

Our 51st Members Exhibition Submission Page will go live just prior to June 1st 2021!
