We as a chapter are part of the national group, CPSA, the Colored Pencil Society of America. It was founded over twenty years ago and grew into an organization that now has a yearly International Convention and Exhibition in various cities across the country. This International Convention brings members together annually to network with other artists across the country, attend the membership meeting, attend the Exhibition and Awards Banquet, and take workshops from notable artists in this field. Members who cannot attend this convention, are able to see the judged results of the competition on the CPSA website and through the CPSA publication.
How Our Chapter Started
Our chapter began with a number of colored pencil enthusiasts and their desire to share and nurture their love of colored pencil art. Founders Bill Shoemaker and Hanneke Jevons, along with six charter members, formed the local group. They requested acceptance and became a chapter in August 2005.
