Welcome to our Website
Our goal is to promote the use of Colored Pencil as a fine art medium. With that objective in mind, the Colored Pencil Painters Guild was established in August of 2011.
Membership is open to residents of The Villages, FL, who are interested in Colored Pencil art work. Our Guild is comprised of members from beginner to advanced artists.
Our activities revolve around the advancement in education for all of our members and we encourage member participation in our events. Activities include Open Workshops, Monthly Programs and Judged Shows. Teachers are available to provide guidance at our Open Workshops. Monthly Meetings feature programs geared toward furthering our skills as artists. These programs include presentations by both our member artists and teachers and by others in the greater art community who have Colored Pencil knowledge and experience.
DUE TO THE SPREAD OF COVID-19, THE RECREATION DEPARTMENT HAS POSTPONED ALL MEETINGS, WORKSHOPS AND EVENTS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL NOTIFYING YOU WHEN ACTIVITIES RESUME.

Fashion Show & Lunch - Demshar's with Fashions by Chico's and Soma - Postponed
Thank you to all of you that bought tickets to benefit our annual CPPG Art Award. As many of us were looking forward to the Fashion Show and Lunch which was scheduled for March 30, it is certainly disappointing that the current coronavirus guidelines will prevent us from holding the event at this time. But rather than cancelling, we have decided to postpone it until a future date. Because of the changing situation, we can't determine the new date yet, but your current tickets will be valid for the rescheduled date. Demshars and Chico's have agreed to work with us to help us reschedule.
We are hoping that you will be able to make the new date. However, if you would prefer a refund now, we will be happy to refund your ticket price. Once we have rescheduled the event, if you find that you are unable to make make the rescheduled date, you will be able to request a refund at that time. Please contact Marie Rosich with any refund requests.
If you have invited non-members to the event, please communicate this message to them.
