Most exciting, from my point of view, is a session with Master Pastellist Gwenneth Barth in Rock House, Westport County Mayo, Ireland, from the 7th to the 12th of June. Rock House is an 1820s lodge on a 30,000 acres sporting estate in North Mayo, one of the wildest and most unspoilt regions of Ireland. Tell your partner to pack a fishing rod
The Société has also announced a competition with the aim of discovering the hidden talents of all you closet pastellists out there - the first prize is a session in Ireland! The competition is confined to artists who have never exhibited before with the Société. Closing date for entries is April 10th. For full information, go to http://www.pastellistesdefrance.com
