Colored Pencil Society of America
The Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA) was founded in 1990 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to artists over 18 years of age working with colored pencil. With about 1600 members worldwide and over 25 District Chapters in the US, CPSA provides opportunities for colored pencil artists to network. The Society is run by a Governing Board consisting of twelve artists and professionals who volunteer their service to ensure benefits to the membership and the future success of the organization. The Society provides two opportunities for colored pencil artists to exhibit their work. Both exhibitions offer cash awards and are juried to promote the highest aesthetic standards of fine art to the public. CPSA is also one the few art organizations to participate proactively in the development of a standard for their medium. With the increased use of colored pencil for creating fine art, CPSA believed it was crucial to have a standard of light fastness for this medium. Consequently, the organization has conducted ongoing test for colored pencil light fastness since 1991.
I like this product very much and have been using it for year's to make all kinds of window clings. I just wish the Plaid company would bring back more of the shimmers and sparkle type paints. However,I have found you can add your own sparkle with glitter..I use many different types of glitters and my window clings are beautiful.
I'm loving this work desk/station, and I put it together in no time at all.
The station is moveable; around the room or from room to room. The casters make it easy. That said, I have a laminate floor, and have to have the casters braced against something to stop them from rolling away with the station. If you have the same problem, you might try using the included stationary feet.
Lowering the angle of the top might catch a finger if you're not aware.
The drawers are lightweight and small, but nice to have at your fingertips. The side trays are molded plastic. Pencil sized holes work great for differing sizes of pencils, brushes and grease pencils.
I used it as a light table with a lamp under the station.It worked great.
There is a large metal "pencil tray". It's handy, but it will remind you that you should not lean on the top.
