About Us

An affiliate of the Colored Pencil Society of America, the Greater Cincinnati Chapter was organized in July of 2006. The DC #119 chapter serves Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. It is open to anyone 18 years and older who would like to join. (All members are required to join the CPSA National Organization). Membership dues are renewed in June of each year and are not prorated.
DC # 119 meets four times each year on the 3rd Saturday in the month of January, April, July, and October. Meetings consist of a short business meeting and an informative program to help you learn more about the art of colored pencil.
The national organization was founded in 1990 by Vera Curnow, who owns a gallery and lives in nearby Rising Sun, Indiana. Vera is an active member of this chapter when her schedule permits.
Our goal is to provide informative meetings and exciting workshops and to make our artist members feel welcome and comfortable whether they have been an artist for just a few months or many years. COME JOIN US.
