The Connecticut Pastel Society is a statewide fine arts organization with a national outreach. CPSSM programs are funded and run by artists and their affiliates intent on increasing awareness of pastel as
a fine art medium. The CPSSM organization now has a tax-exempt status and is therefore eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions.
From the CPS Board
CPS now is able to offer scholarships to pastelists wishing to attend any of our workshops. Please see the Education/Workshops page.
Please see our Exhibition Guidelines before entering any of our exhibitions.
Welcome to the newly designed CPS website! More features are being developed, so check back soon to see what has been added. Many thanks to Janet Cook, whose original CPS site design has functioned so beautifully for us for so many years, and to Jean Louis of Louis Design, LLC, whose new design brings us into a new era.
