Your Committee

We ‘Zoom’ our monthly Committee Meetings

Technology is a wonderful thing! We are able to convene our meetings using video-conferencing technology called Zoom. It enables us to conduct the meeting with all members of the committee from the comfort of our own homes, avoiding travelling at night.

We are looking for more committee members – are you able to volunteer some time to help with the running of the Pastel Society of Victoria, Australia?  Contact Anne Taylor if you’d like to join the committee.  Email Anne ->

Another en Plein Air painting opportunity for members
