About US

The Ohio Pastel Artists League (OPAL) was established in 2012 with the goal of providing a forum for pastel artists to share ideas and foster the growth of the use of the medium of soft pastels. The organization is run by volunteers who put together programs, workshops, and exhibitions to foster the growth of OPAL artists.
