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 ->

Did you know we have a vibrant community of like minds on Facebook?

It’s easy to join our Facebook group and we’d love to see you upload your pastel paintings, workshops and other Pastel information
