The Semi-Annual IAPS Convention, Albuquerque, NM – June 7-11, 2017

Some wonderful news for 2017!

The Semi-Annual IAPS (International Association of Pastel Society) Convention opens Wednesday June 7 and closes Sunday June 11 at the Albuquerque Hotel located in the heart of Albuquerque New Mexico.

I highly recommend attending the convention for it’s a great opportunity to meet hundreds of pastelists. Choose from numerous pastel workshops and demonstrations and have the opportunity to view and acquire a huge variety of pastels from different brands, and all sorts of interesting equipment designed specifically for us pastelists from merchants.
