Pastel Pick of the Week | Canadian Pastel Conference 2016


Canada made headlines this week thanks to an official State Dinner at the White House, where President Obama welcomed the new Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

I decided I would keep Canada in the news cycle a bit longer—at least in the pastel news cycle—by sharing this announcement from Ruth Rodgers, president of Pastel Artists Canada:


“Pastel Artists Canada announces a five-day pastel conference, “ICAN Pastel,” to run from May 30 through June 3, 2016, at the Aurora Cultural Centre in Aurora, Ontario, Canada, located one hour north of Toronto. Our 2016 juried exhibition, in the same location, will open on Saturday May 28, kicking off the conference activities. Join us for an exciting line-up of demonstrations, workshops, and other events featuring award-winning and experienced Canadian pastel artists. We welcome all pastel artists, novice to advanced. Hope to see you there!”
