CPSA sponsors an exciting and innovative exhibition called Explore This! which opens on the website every February first. Artwork must be predominantly colored pencil and must include some element or technique that makes it ineligible for the CPSA International Exhibition. The goal is to encourage artists to use colored pencil in ways not allowed by the International Exhibition. The exhibition offers over $5,000 in awards including the prestigious Best of Show (EXPY) Award.
