Who We Are

In 2006, a group of pastelists at the Dunedin Fine Art Center (DFAC), Dunedin, Florida came together to form the Pastel Society of Tampa Bay.
Through instructor Brooke Allison, the group had shared the love of pastel for many years and a pastel society was a natural outgrowth.

When the word spread about the formation of our group, artists joined from throughout the Tampa Bay area, including Pinellas, Pasco and Hillsborough counties. To date, there are 50 plus members in the PSTB. We are a diverse, talented group, some members being professional artists while others have just discovered the pastel medium.

We continue to use Dunedin as our home base with most meetings taking place at the Dunedin Fine Art Center (DFAC.org) or it’s satellite location at Stirling Commons in downtown Dunedin. Click here for a map to DFAC.
