Frequently Asked Questions

Who are we?
The Cider Painters of America is a group of art lovers who share their ideas through Miniature Art. It began locally in Pennsylvania and has grown to a national level. We have members in other countries too.

Who are the "Cider" Painters?
The C.P.A. is a tribute to the Whiskey Painters of America and the Scotch and Watercolor Society, serious artists with light hearted outlooks. Since most of the original founders were "teetotalers", we decided the Cider.

What is a Cider Painting?
It is a piece of artwork painted smaller than 3" x 5" in size. We measure it actual painting boundaries, not by square inches.

Do you only accept 2-Dimensional painted media?
In 2021 we added two new categories to our media division. One is Graphite pencil. The second is sculpture. We are growing to accomodate interest in our organization. Currently we accept most types of media except those in computer fields.

Do artists paint with actual Cider?
Sometimes, but we prefer to drink it.
