Announcing Fundraiser & Convention Update

The Annual Convention Fundraiser

This year Melissa Miller Nece, our Ways and Means Director, has put together a great Fundraiser. It will be known as the Member-to-Member Fundraiser and features two great items donated by two CPSA Members. These items will be given as two separate prizes. One lucky winner will receive an Icarus Drawing Board, the fabulous dual temperature drawing surface, invented and donated by Ester Roi and her company, Icarus Art. The other winner will receive a Carry-Go-Round, the ideal pencil organizer designed and donated by Cynthia Morris, CPSA. Constructed of fine solid woods, 12" across and 13" tall, this three-tiered carousel holds over 850 pencils and other supplies, and revolves on a durable lazy Susan swivel base. More description of prizes.

All you have to do now is print out the ticket page ( and return them with your check. They are $1 per ticket or 6 tickets for $5.00. You can purchase and submit as many tickets as you want. The drawing will be at the Members Meeting at the Convention in Atlanta, GA and you need not be present to win. However, we love it when the winners are present and we can all whoop and holler.

Convention Update

Plans are continuing for the Atlanta Convention. Reservations are coming in through our online shopping cart and from those that are mailed. If you want to register for one of our excellent workshops, it is suggested that you register early. We have Betsy Holster, CPSA, and Pat Averill, CPSA as our instructors this year. The titles of the workshops are intriguing and are sure to stretch your inventiveness. “Stuck in a Rut? Expand Your Options” is the title of Betsy’s workshop and Pat’s subject will be “Unleash the Magic of Water (using Crayon, Wax, and Colored Pencil).” Each one-day workshop will be offered on Thursday and Friday of convention week.
