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.
June 9 ZOOM Session at 9:15 a.m.
Please join us for Eileen Sklon's presentation on how to best take reference photos with your camera. This is a great learning opportunity, and we hope to see you there. A link for the ZOOM session will be sent out several days before the meeting.
The nominated officers for the next term will be voted on at this meeting. They are Mary Tougas for President, Mattea Truppe for Vice President, Jane Bowman for Secretary and Pat Buckert for Treasurer. Please join the meeting to meet them and cast your vote. The installation of the officers will take place at the September meeting.
There will not be a meeting in July; however, we hope to resume in-person meetings in August.
