About District Chapter 114 Raleigh-Durham NC
The nonprofit Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA) was founded in 1990 by Vera Curnow and represents almost 2,000 members worldwide who work with the versatile medium of colored pencil. It supports district chapters throughout the United States.
The CPSA District Chapter 114 Raleigh-Durham, based in Cary, North Carolina, was founded in 2000. The chapter serves its members by providing opportunities for education, workshops, networking, and art exhibitions showcasing the fine art of colored pencil. Several chapter members teach classes in colored pencil. Our chapter supports colored pencil artists throughout the Carolinas.
