The Piedmont Pastel Society, a non-profit organization, was established in 2007. Our goal is to promote and provide educational opportunities for our members; to enhance community awareness and appreciation of the value and beauty of soft pastels; and to connect individual artists in our region.
We welcome pastel artists from beginner to advanced. Members experience a creative environment for learning and sharing in art demonstrations, membership exhibitions, plein air outings, and workshops. Our programs and socials provide channels for networking, communication, and friendship.
The Piedmont Pastel Society will be hosting a workshop by
renowned artist Dawn Emerson in October, 2015.
REGISTRATION IS OFFICIALLY OPEN!!
In addition, Dawn will be doing a demo, open to all, on Thursday,
October 8. It will take place in the morning, and lunch will follow.
Cost is $35.00 per person. You do not have to take the workshop to
attend the demo. To register for the demo, please go to our website,
under workshops, and register and pay via Paypal. This is a separate
registration form and payment.
