Pastel Artists of New Zealand

Regional Groups

Regional Groups have been established throughout New Zealand to encourage new members to join PANZ and to create opportunities for members to get together for local activities, such as exhibitions/shows, workshops, demonstrations and to generally enjoy the company of other pastellists in your local area.


Each region has a representative who is the first point of contact for members who have any queries, suggestions or problems. If they are unable to help they will in turn contact the committee member responsible for regional representation.

There are a few regions without representation, if you are interested please contact the Regional Co-ordinator Julie Freeman at
