Considered the most prestigious european pastel salon, receiving near 20,000 visits every year, the 10th edition of the Festival International du Pastel will take place at Espace Georges Brassens from July 3 through September 5, 2010.
Resulting from the collaboration between the city of Feytiat and the Société des Pastellistes de France, the festival gathers some of the best pastelists worldwide and is an unmissable opportunity to see great works of art, get acquainted with the artists and satisfy your curiosities towards the medium.
Every year are exhibited around 300 works chosen for their beauty and technique.
The programme includes theme based workshops: landscape, still life, florals, portrait and nude (live model), which will be carried through four sessions, with a cost of 400 Euro each.
With free admission, the 10th edition of the Festival International du Pastel can be visited between 14h00 and 19h00 (Monday to Friday) and between 10h00 - 12h00 and 14h00 - 19h00 (Saturday, Sunday and holidays)
This year's edition features Nà Luther as the guest artist.
