From the President’s easel……Summer 2020
Thank you for being a part of 3CPS! Our 2020 Members’ Exhibit online and it is impressive!
See where we’ve been painting plein air and where the next paintouts will be. They are all in open nature, so plenty of space to feel comfortable together but alone.
As your new president, my goal is to continue building our community of artists, to inspire and to help us become the best artists we can be!
I’m looking forward to meeting each of you in 2020. Your participation and ideas are what makes 3CPS such a vital and growing society of pastelists. Join us for these great events!

Albert Handell – 4 Day – All Outdoor workshop in beautiful Cambria, CA & Surrounding Area
WEDNESDAY – SATURDAY, MAY 10 – 13, 2021
Registration is open directly through Albert Handell’s website:
For questions contact Denise Schryver, workshop coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Join Albert in this exciting 4 day OUTDOOR painting workshop. In the morning demonstrations in oils and pastels you will see and learn what to select and emphasize and what to play down or even take out of your paintings in order to make a strong design statement, and then work sensibly towards finish. It will be an opportunity to see how a Master Artist works on location.
All painting and demos will be held outdoors and we typically have gorgeous weather in May but if there is inclement weather we have available a huge, airy outbuilding we will use with more than enough space.
Due to Covid 19 no meetings are scheduled at this time.
