Société des Pastellistes de France brought me to an interesting event with ten years tradition. I’ve found out that since 2000 the Society is organizing International Pastel Festival which has become the most important event devoted to pastels in Europe. Created in partnership with Town of Feytiat the International Pastel Festival receives about 20.000 visitors yearly and hosts a huge number of artist from all around the world. You also have possibility to attend different workshops.
Next International Pastel Festival in Town of Feytiat will take place this year from July 3rd to September 5th. Even though you might not speak French you could find this event interesting and pages worth translating. Here you can find the gallery of great works from previous festivals.
