Welcome to CPAPS.  We are a group of local artists who enjoy the camaraderie, support and safety of painting together.  We select sites within Connecticut that provide painters with bucolic farmlands, coastal marshes and vistas, waterways in forests, and open spaces, as well as some of our historic and unique residences and villages. We encourage you to come paint with us!

2017 Juried Members Show

In spite of snowy weather we had a good turnout for Mark Boedges’ demo and the Opening Reception.  Mark’s demo was very informative.  The reception was a little shorter than planned due to the weather, but everyone seemed to have a good time.  Many thanks to all who helped out.  It was much appreciated.
