Our goal is to build up a creative community for artists, who choose pastel as their main medium.
To unite and support pastel artists on our platforms.
To create more opportunities for artists, so that they could educate, develop and show their work.
To share information about pastel and the unique place of this medium in the world of art.
To attract attention to artists, who work with pastel.
To speak about cultural heritage of our country.
To promote communication and networking among pastel artists of different countries.
WE OFFER OUR ARTISTS
Participation in our exhibitions.
The most interesting information about pastel, working with the material, art tendencies, events and pastel exhibitions in Russia and abroad.
First of all, the community of likeminded people enables every artist to grow and develop thanks to information and experience exchange.
On 21 December 2018 National Pastel Society of Russia became a member of the International Association of Pastel Societies (IAPS). It gives our members a chance to take part in international exhibitions and on-line contests as well as to get information about world-famous artists and their workshops.
We have recently started our organization and are in the early stages, so we welcome any volunteers. If you are enthusiastic and willing to help, feel free to contact our secretary email@example.com
We appreciate your support!
All the volunteers will be listed on the site.
We also welcome all kinds of financial support – any contribution is valuable. We are looking forward to collaborating with sponsors and benefactors.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
The idea to create our Society did not belong to one person only.
The lives of all our team members have been connected to art and pastel for many years. Pastel artists in our country do not communicate much. In addition to that, there is not enough information about pastel art and graphics.
That is why we have decided to start our noncommercial organization National Pastel Society of Russia, which is going to help pastel artists in their projects, development and communication.
We welcome you to our team!
