Maggie Price is a co-founder and former editor of The Pastel Journal, a national magazine for pastel artists. She is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, the Pastel Society of New Mexico, Plein Air New Mexico, APOW, and a member of the Pastel Society of the West Coast and the Great Lakes Pastel Society.

Maggie emphasizes personal instruction in a supportive and friendly atmosphere during her workshops. Daily demonstrations and personal assistance at each artist's easel gives her an opportunity to share information gained from years of experience painting in pastel, as well as that gathered through writing about art and artists. Her husband, artist Bill Canright, gives occasional demonstrations on specific techniques or subjects, and assists artists as needed and generally helps make the workshops run smoothly.
