Margaret Ferraro fine artist and pastellist MPAC EM.

January 1/2020

2020 has started off quite well, with a note that I am being given this designation, as Master pastellist-Emminent. There are now only 4 people with this designation in Canada! I am honoured by our national organization of pastellists. Thank you!

June 3-7 2020

The ICAN national pastel conference will be taking place, in conjunction with the Pastel Artists of Canada national juried show, at the Neilsen Park Creative Centre, in Etobicoke.

Margaret will be teaching 3 workshops there, interpreting colour into the grey scale, colour contrasts, and pastel storage, all about organizing yourself around the personal way you use colour. The 3 workshops are designed to be built onto one another incrementally, making perfect sense to take all three. Margaret has discount cards for participants from major pastel suppliers. For more information, go to my Canadian workshops page.

Another honour is that Margaret has been named the juror for the national show, AND will be giving a demonstration at the opening reception. This is a great learning experience, to take many workshops, see demonstrations being done, and view many pastel paintings, all in one space. For more information about the conference, go to
