The Pastel Society of North Carolina is an educational corporation dedicated to advance the knowledge of soft pastel painting. Our goal is to promote and provide educational opportunities for our members: to enhance community awareness and appreciation of the beauty and value of soft pastels; and to bring together individual artists in our region.

We welcome pastel artists of all levels from amateur to professional. Members experience a creative environment for learning and sharing in art demonstrations, workshops, member exhibitions and plein air outings. Our programs provide channels for networking, communication and friendship.
