Our chapter has some of the finest colored pencil artists in the state of California, if not the entire country. Every person in CPSA Chapter 214 is committed to the advancement of the use of colored pencil as a fine art medium. Artwork completed by our members attest to that spirit of dedication, which is clearly on display in our gallery of works.
We meet five times per year, in February, April, June, October and December usually on the first Saturday of those months, between 10 AM and Noon. You can check the calendar on the Meetings page of the site for the exact location, dates and times.
The meetings are a place to meet others who share your interests and learn from those who have vast experience. At the conclusion of the meetings we routinely offer a raffle where members have a chance to leave the meeting with new art supplies.
Benefits of membership in the Los Angeles District Chapter 214 include five meetings per year, an annual DC 214 color pencil exhibit, a newsletter published five times a year, workshops and a chance to display your color pencil artwork on our chapter website, on your own dedicated gallery page.
Members benefit from the experience offered from some of the best color pencil artists in the region. The meetings offer the members an opportunity to share their recent accomplishments and receive updates in the realm of colored pencil. Guest speakers are featured at each meeting that provide instruction and information in areas from techniques and new materials to promoting and showing their artwork.
