Our organization, the Colored Pencil Society of America, has worked hard to educate the art world that the medium of colored pencil is, in fact, fine art. Here is a quote from the CPSA website: "Founded in 1990, the Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA) is a nonprofit organization for colored pencil enthusiasts working to promote colored pencils as a fine art medium by sponsoring exhibitions and workshops, being involved in product research, and educating the public in general." You will be amazed by what you see when you delve into the colored pencil world. There is great debate whether using colored pencil is painting or drawing. Whatever your opinion, colored pencil allows for great precision and detail, the complex layering of colors, conveying of soft or sharp elements, and creating something special in portraits, nature, wildlife, city-, water-, and landscapes. And it's an economical and portable medium. Pack up your pencils and a few other supplies and you can go anywhere to capture unforgettable moments. So, consider exploring colored pencil art and joining us on this journey.
