Central Texas Pastel Society

The mission of Central Texas Pastel Society (CTPS) is to promote soft pastel as a recognized medium by engaging the central Texas art community through shows, exhibitions and workshops.


In support of this primary mission, CTPS conducts monthly meetings so artists can learn from renown featured artist presentations.  We conduct workshops, paint outs, and other programs to help every artist reach their full potential with this brilliant and fascinating medium.


The Society seeks to strengthen the local art community and enhance the visibility and livelihoods of its artists through our Annual Show and year-round programs.
