Lake Country Pastel Society
The Lake Country Pastel Society (LCPS) seeks to unite artists interested in the pastel medium and to serve their needs by encouraging artistic growth and development through education and sharing. LCPS also works to create public awareness of pastel as a unique and beautiful art form. LCPS’ members consist of amateur and professional artists. LCPS’ focus is the medium of pastel, a pure pigment used in making all fine art paints. Pastel is the most permanent of all media when applied to a permanent ground and properly framed. There is no oil to cause darkening or cracking, nor other substances or mediums to cause fading or blistering. Pastels from the 16th century exist today, as fresh and alive as the day they were painted!
