Whether you have an interest in learning more about the medium of pastel or you’re an active pastel artist, we hope you will join us for monthly programs and special events!
Our meetings begin with APS business, then we have a presentation by a prominent artist or on an art-related topic. Guests are welcome to attend.
Note: Our June meeting is reserved for the annual garage sale event. Our next APS Demo will be in September 2018.
