CPSA Membership

If you’re not already a member, we'd love to have you join in the fun and creative exchange that goes on at our regular monthly meetings. We offer interesting programs, as well as moral and artistic support—and lots of fun with congenial people. You may attend three meetings free (we’re generous) before we start twisting your arm to pay up and join.

How to join

Just show up at a meeting and whisper, “I want to join,” and people will swarm all over you with application forms. It’s $25 a year for our local chapter membership, and $45 for national CPSA membership. You must join the national organization to join the local one. What a deal. You can’t beat the price.

What you get

  1. To the Point, the national magazine, twice a year (It’s excellent.)
  2. Product research, pigment identification, lightfast information—the national organization promoting quality commercial products for the integrity of your work
  3. Lower member-rate entry fee for the annual CPSA International Exhibition
  4. Member’s rate for workshops at the CPSA convention
  5. International membership directory
  6. Opportunities to exhibit your work locally
  7. Inspiration, excitement, and learning at our meetings
  8. A rooting section for your work
  9. Friends who understand your artist’s brain

We'd love to have you join in the fun and creative exchange that goes on at our regular monthly meetings.
