Established in 18 August 1969 by 13 young watercolour enthusiasts, the Singapore Watercolour Society (SWS) is the only non-profit art organisation in Singapore that focuses on the art of watercolour painting.
Since its establishment, SWS has organised and participated in major exhibitions in Singapore and abroad. As part of our community outreach, we have initiated the National Junior Watercolour Competition to generate interest in watercolour painting amongst the younger generation. Students from the main stream schools are invited, and winners are given cash awards and certificates. A special pre-competition workshop is also organised to prepare the young participants for the competition.
