The PSA School for Pastels at The National Arts Club

In 1989 the Pastel Society of America opened its doors to students wishing to learn the versatile techniques of the pastel medium. The PSA School was later re-named after the founder of the Pastel Society of America, the late Flora B. Giffuni, who taught portrait and figure classes there for many years.

The PSA school was made possible by the donation of space by The National Arts Club. An original concept at the time of its founding, it is still a unique place in which every genre is offered using pastels as the medium of expression and where students receive one-on-one instruction.
