About CPSA - District Chapter 117
At the time DC-117 was established in 2005, it was designated as “St. Augustine” as the city is a central point on the First Coast. Originally, our meetings were held in Palm Coast and our members attended from a wide area ~ Jacksonville to New Smyrna Beach and west to Gainesville. Now, members from across the country can join us via Zoom. Subsequently, our chapter name was changed to CPSA-DC117, Palm Coast, FL. Our Chapter, founded by Bill Shoemaker and Hanneke Jevons, started with a number of colored pencil enthusiasts and their desire to share and nurture their love of colored pencil as a fine art.
Anyone who is interested is welcomed at our meetings – no experience necessary! Many people get started in this medium after going to one meeting or show. They are fascinated with the vast possibilities of colored pencil. Our Chapter also sponsors workshops with nationally-known artists to help us learn new techniques and refine our skills. We welcome all interested artists to attend a meeting where we share our talents and colored pencil art information.
