PSC was founded in 1994 by a group of six artists as a way to promote pastel artists, the soft pastel medium and to encourage the appreciation and art of pastel painting. PSC has become a far-reaching organization, uniting artists across the Rocky Mountains and beyond. It offers opportunities for artists through “pastels only” exhibitions at least four times a year, and through informative demonstrations by recognized pastel artists both locally and nationally. Members can enjoy workshops and classes offered throughout the year.  For more information visit pastelsocietyofcolorado.org
