Our Mission

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.
