2020 Member Exhibition
Continues Online

2021 Dues Announcement
After many years of holding our dues steady and in light of our additional member-only events and other activities, the CPP Board is adding new dues categories and increasing slightly our basic dues (currently $35):

  • Full-time student: Free
  • Basic membership: $40
  • Signature member: $55

Incentive to act now:
If you renew before we make the necessary changes to our website, your dues for 2021 will remain at the current flat $35!

The Chicago Pastel Painters is now on YouTube!
The CPP 2020 Member Exhibition award ceremony
and our Fall Demo series are now available for you to watch on our own CPP YouTube Channel
