The South Coast Pastel Society Inc. is gearing up for the next 12 months of pastel & art activities. Exhibitions, workshops, pavement painting, member talks and meetings are just some of the planned items on the agenda.
Always keeping a fresh approach to art we finalised 2016 with an excellent workshop conducted by Canberra pastelist, Amanda McLean, where the participants learnt another new approach in applying pastel. Some of these works will be on display along with a variety of styles and techniques at our up & coming January exhibition.
