The Kentuckiana Artists Pastel Society was founded in the Spring of 1997. The founder and president Dix Morris, had just discovered an interest in painting with pastels and attended the International Association of Pastel Societies International Convention in Kansas City. She found the program so exciting she called together a group of five artists to consider the formation of a Pastel Society in the Kentucky-Indiana area.
Within a year the group had grown to over 40 members. Activities include hosting Fine Arts Exhibits, bi-monthly meetings, sponsoring Art in Local Schools, and "Paint-in" Days and workshops. A bi-monthly newsletter keeps members informed of activities and opportunities for growing with the wonderful medium of Pastel.
KAPS, member of the International Association of Pastel Societies is open to all artists interested in pastels and the promotion of pastel paintings.
