Welcome to the Iowa Pastel Society website!

Over the last few decades, pastel has become the medium of choice for many artists. In 2007, at a gathering of pastel folks, the thought arose that perhaps there was a need for interested pastel artists to share experiences and ideas about this stimulating medium. What better way to address this issue they thought, then to create an organization for networking, encouragement, and provide opportunities for artist growth. Therefore, they started a new arts organization called the Iowa Pastel Society. We encourage you to join and become one of our members.

Mission Statement: The Iowa Pastel Society is an association for artists at all levels of experience who are interested in the pastel medium. We bring together enthusiastic pastel artists as a group to network. We offer educational opportunities to assist our members in their artistic growth. We seek to create fellowship for the betterment of ourselves and our medium.
