Each year, the PPSCC Stone Scholarship provides funds for up to three qualified PPSCC members to study with an award-winning pastel instructor in a hands-on workshop environment (which may be virtual). The program is available for paid PPSCC members with non-professional status (not yet won any national or international awards, not a signature member of any art society, and not represented by a gallery).
The fund enables the three recipients to participate in one of the following:
- Two Winter One-Day Workshops (awarded to two individuals)
- One 2-day Masters Pastel Workshop given in the summer and the fall.
In 2022, we are offering one scholarship in the form of one 2-day Masters pastel workshop conducted in October. The other two recipients will be eligible for one of the 2023 Winter One-Day Workshops.
The selection committee will review and select three recipients based on potential and interest in participating in a PPSCC workshop.
Recipients will be announced at the “For Pastels Only” Awards Ceremony on July 9, 2022.
