The PSC is proud to announce that the judge and juror is Marla Baggetta. A prolific painter and teacher, Marla's artwork and workshops are nationally sought after. Her work has been represented throughout the country for over 30 years. Contributing to many art publications such as Pastel Journal, she is a signature PSA member and an IAPS Master Circle Recipient.Marla graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. She worked as a commercial illustrator for 25 years. After moving to Oregon in 1993, she was inspired by the beauty of the Willamette Valley and began painting landscapes that blend realism and abstraction that convey a sense of calm and balance. Among her numerous awards and honors are Arts for the Parks Annual Juried Exhibition. She has been featured in the Pastel Journal and is included in Pure Color: The Best of Pastel and Sketchbook Confidential II. She is the author of Step by Step Pastel by Walter Foster Publishing. Her paintings can be found in numerous public and private collections throughout the country.

While she makes her home in Portland, Oregon, Baggetta travels extensively throughout the United States painting, teaching workshops and jurying shows. Marla is a sought after workshop instructor, adept at helping students develop an individual painting style. Baggetta's approach to painting reflects both the formal art education she received at Art Center College of Design and the years of experience that can only be gained from behind the easel.

Take the journey into new territory and move towards your own unique voice as an artist. Beginner to advanced students welcome.
