To create a community of pastel artists, to set standards of excellence through education and to encourage and nurture artists in their professional growth. Further, we strive to educate the public and gallery owners of the permanence, versatility and value of the medium and to offer opportunities for our members to participate in juried shows and exhibitions devoted to pastels. We hope to establish pastel as a separate category in art exhibitions.
It’s easy to join! Members of all levels are welcome. New, experienced and professional pastel artists as well as interested supporters may join. If you’re interested in pastel painting, your PPSCC membership will allow you to meet fellow artists, share ideas, learn new things, and even exhibit your work.
