Wisconsin Pastel Artists Facebook




We are a dynamic association of over 40 artists working in the pastel medium.  

We want to encourage and foster creative painting with pastels, support our fellow artists, promote activities and exhibit opportunities, and increase public awareness of the beautiful artistry of pastels as a painting medium. ​

Continuing education and constantly challenging ourselves as artists is a top priority for WPA.  We arrange for stimulating workshops and lectures at Members' meetings.


There is a wealth of knowledge about the pastel medium and practicing artists.  Here are a number of links to articles and helpful sites.
