We have been looking at better ways to share
info and help Society members to connect with each other,
so we have launched a number of social networking channels.
Participation is voluntary, of course, but we think you might
enjoy taking part. We'll be talking more about this as time goes
on, so you'll get an opportunity to ask questions, and get help if
necessary. Here are the channels that are currently in place:
MNWS LinkedIn group. LinkedIn is a
networking Website used by people to connect with others in
the same industry. It works well for artists, too. You’ll need
to join LinkedIn at
www.linkedin.com and then do a search for Minnesota
Watercolor Society group.
Are you a
Facebook user? Then search for Minnesota
Watercolor Society Fan Page once you are logged in, and join
the group to view and post messages, pictures, videos and
is on Twitter. Follow our Tweets (short announcements, news,
