Welcome to the Saginaw Area Watermedia Artists, or SAWA for short, web site! We are a Michigan Non-Profit Organization established to promote fine watermedia and art including watercolor, gouache, acrylic, casein, inks and collage that include those mediums, in the Saginaw and surrounding areas.
We hold meetings on the third Thursday of each month at the Saginaw Art Museum, 1126 N. Michigan Ave, Saginaw MI. Our program calendar runs from October 1st to September 30 with membership dues payable October 1st. We offer workshops, member exhibitions, demonstrations, "paint togethers" and other fun events throughout the year.
