THE WPA BOARD

LEARN MORE ABOUT MEMBERSHIP - CLICK THE 'MEMBERS' TAB ABOVE.

The Wisconsin Pastel Artists is a dynamic group of artists working in the pastel medium.  Our members come from all over the state, and from a wide variety of backgrounds and experience.


So you don't have to be a professional artist to join.  We always look forward to seeing new faces and talent !


The goals of the Wisconsin Pastel Artists (WPA) are to:


  1. promote appreciation of the unique qualities of pastel as a medium;  
  2. to encourage and develop artists both artistically and professionally through workshops, exhibitions, meetings, and critiques;
  3. ​promote public awareness of pastels;
  4. ​and especially encourage fun and creativity among our members as we explore the unique possibilities of using pastels.
