What would you say to spending a few days in the “Land of Enchantment” next spring? What if doing so also offered the opportunity to watch demonstrations and take hands-on classes with some of today’s top pastel artists? What if you could, at the same time, check out the newest products for pastel artists? Add to it all the chance to hang out with other artists who share a passion for pastel and you’ve got a good idea of what to expect at the 2009 Convention of the International Association of Pastel Societies.
A schedule of events and classes for the 8th IAPS Convention is now available on the IAPS website. The biennial gathering is scheduled to take place at the Hotel Albuquerque in Albuquerque, N.M., May 28 through 31. Plans also include pre- and post-convention workshops with Richard McKinley, Maggie Price, Margaret Evans, Jimmy Wright and Lorenzo Chavez.
The convention is open to all artists, but there is discounted registration for anyone belonging to an IAPS member society. You can get more information, download registration forms, and view the availability of workshops and classes on the IAPS website.
See you there!
