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.

Lake Miona Judged Show
The show is scheduled for January 9, 2021. Drop off and pickup will be 7:30 a.m. thru 8:30 a.m. Please register by January 5 using the form at www.pencil painters.com on the SHOW RULES/FORMS page. Due to COVID restrictions, the January 10 reception is cancelled but you may view the paintings at your leisure.
In addition to the Laurel Manor and Lake Miona workshops, we will be starting a new monthly workshop at the Everglades Recreation Center on December 17 from 1:00 p.m. to 3 :00 p.m. The Everglades Workshop will be held the third Thursday of the month and is replacing the weekly Fenney workshop.
Once again, we will be donating holiday cards to The Villages Hospital. Please remember that the cards must be non-religious; you can write a holiday wish inside and sign them. Do not put them in a plastic seal, and do not seal the envelope. We have two options for you to donate your cards.
Food Collection for the Holidays
The need for donations is very great this year, especially with so many people out of work due to the virus. So, if you can, instead of food, please donate by check this year. Please send your donations to Jim Courtney's address below. Jim will tally our donation and take it to the Christian Food Pantry on our behalf. The Food Pantry serves Lady Lake and the Villages. Please make your check payable to Christian Food Pantry. Thank you for your generosity!

Unfortunately, the Annual Jubilee Show and Sale for March 2021 has been cancelled due to COVID. The good news is that the Recreation Department will give us the same weekend in 2022 when we can plan to have an amazing Jubilee!
