The Royal Watercolour Society is a registered Educational Charity that receives no funding from the Government.  We rely solely on the generosity of those who share the same values as the Society and believe that Arts Education is a crucial aspect of cultural education.  


Our Friends, Patrons and Members enable us to continue our education programme, exhbitions and events.  By supporting us we hope to provide you with an insight into the important place that water-based media has in both the history of British painting and in the contemporary art world.   

You can support us in different ways; by making a one off donation, becoming a Patron or Friend or providing Corporate Sponsorship.


Buying art is also a wonderful way of supporting the Society.  We are a member of the Own Art scheme which enables you to split a purchase into ten payments over ten months - you can even take the work home at the point of purchase.
