Welcome to the
UK Coloured Pencil Society website

The UK Coloured Pencil Society was founded in 2001 with three main aims in mind - to promote excellence in coloured pencils as a fine art medium, to support UK based artists who use coloured pencils, in any genre and to educate artists, and the public in general, about coloured pencils. It has enabled professional coloured pencil artists to promote their artistry within this specialisation and share their expertise with amateur members.

Our website offers examples of what can be done with coloured pencils, links to artists who use them, and details of upcoming events and exhibitions which promote this medium.
