A Special Thank You to All Who Support CPSA

Did you ever wonder where all the wonderful products come from that CPSA gives out through our raffles and “goody bags” during convention week? Or did you wonder how CPSA is able to give our award winners cash prizes at our exhibition? None of it would be possible without the generous donations from our patron and sponsor member companies, district chapters and other manufacturers and distributors. We work throughout the year with companies, not only to gain support, but also to support their endeavors in furthering colored pencil as a fine art medium. We do hope our artists support these fine folks in their artistic endeavors as well.

CPSA gave out $15,000 in cash to our award winners this year. Our list of award supporters can be found here:
