My favorite arts organization these days is Print Arts Northwest|PAN.
PAN is one of the longest-running professional artists' associations in the region and is holding a current call for artist members, both regional and national.
One aspect of this organization that is most impressive, besides the stellar talent of its membership, is PAN's dedication to supporting arts education in our schools.
PAN's Art In The Classroom program partners with regional schools teaching printmaking fundamentals in the classroom, as well as providing ongoing workshops for art instructors.
Here's a brief introduction to PAN with information on how to apply for membership:
