The Colored Pencil Society of America is a nonprofit organization formed in 1990, with 22 active U.S. chapters dedicated to artists working with colored pencil. District Chapter 201 was the very first district chapter, also formed in 1990 under the national organization. More about our chapter.
DC 201 serves Oregon and Southern Washington CPSA members.

At the May 2011 meeting we introduced our proposal for creating local "colored pencil circles" (CPCs) under the Portland DC 201 umbrella for our artists who live more than an hour from the Wilsonville meetings. We'll continue to talk more about CPCs at future meetings. Download the PDF
