It’s fun. It’s educational. It’s the annual CPSA convention! At the convention you can spend time with fellow artists from across the U.S. (and other countries), attend workshops, see the CPSA International Exhibition in person, win raffle and door prizes, see images of every entry submitted to the exhibition, bid on small works of original art from favorite artists, find great products and prices at an art materials trade show, enjoy a delicious banquet meal, and watch the excitement as nervous award winners find out which award they’ve won—culminating in the announcement for the $5,000 Best of Show / CIPPY Award!

A New Art Series for a Great Cause
Pebbles from Heaven, No. 1 - Ester Roi
This is the first piece in a new series called “Pebbles from Heaven”. On February 4th, 2017, Ester's friend Bruno Serato had his restaurant destroyed by an electrical fire. For the last 12 years Bruno has used this very restaurant to provide free, warm, nutritional meals to underprivileged children in Orange County. His charity, Caterina’s Club, feeds 1,200 children, 5 nights a week.
For every original and giclee sold in the “Pebbles from Heaven” series, Ester will donate 25% of the sale price directly to Caterina’s Club, indefinitely.
