About DC 224

CPSA District Chapter 224 was started on September 4, 2016.


DC 224 covers the entire state of Texas for all of the CPSA National members; however, we are open to any colored pencil artist 18 years of age or older who wishes to join Chapter 224.

Membership requires that you be a member of both the National CPSA and District Chapter. The National CPSA dues are $45 annually, and the chapter dues are $25.

We will have general meetings 1 - 2 times a year. Guests are welcome to all of our general meetings and are encouraged to join our wonderful chapter.

We intend to have a couple of 2-day workshops by various CP Artists. They will be open to everyone who registers. Membership is not required.

Come join us in supporting the National CPSA Organization and Chapter 224 - Dallas/Ft Worth!
