ICAN is a biannual conference featuring Canada’s top pastel artists and provides an opportunity to learn, grow, and make connections with other pastel artists from across Canada and beyond. 

We had 5 days of 25 events including: workshops, demos, reception, paint around, gallery walkabouts, and more!  A great time was had by all!    Thank you to Ruth Rodgers, Gloria Burgoin, Chloe Typert-Morrison, Susan Typert, Joan Larson, Anne Fraser and all the rest of the PAC members for their time, effort and ingenuity that  helped make ICAN 2023 a success!
