French Pastel Society 2012

The French Pastel Society, or Société de Pastellistes de France, has just issued their programme for 2010. Events will be staged in Ville d'Yerres, Feytiat, Saint-Florent-le-Vieil, Montluçon and Ville de Chaville.
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
Look for the legend A RETENIR - CONCOURS, click on the word suite > >, and click on Reglement de concours et bulletin d'inscription on the bottom of the left hand column. This will bring you to  a page with a choice of 5 pdf documents to download. You need the single document in the centre row of the table.

Alternatively, this link will bring you directly to the pdfs.
Bon chance à tous!
