Workshop & Class Submissions

PSWC Signature artists and Distinguished Pastellists are invited to list classes and workshops in the PSWC newsletters. Please send exact wording to be used, in third person and single paragraph format. New listings should be sent in for each calendar year.

Workshop fees will not be listed. When submitting a listing, instructor’s PSWC Signature/Distinguished Pastellist status must be included; listings will not be posted otherwise. To save space and editing time, we do not note instructors’ signature status, other than distinctions such as PSA Hall of Fame or PSWC Pastel Laureates™.

For workshop listings and updates to workshops: email Workshop Listings
Please note: Only workshops offered by PSWC signature / distinguished pastellist members are posted.

If you have photos from your workshops, you may submit one with your workshop listing. It is the web director's decision on whether it will be displayed here.
