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, SOME ON-SITE CLUB ACTIVITIES ARE EITHER POSTPONED OR OCCURING ON Z00M. SEE THE CALENDAR TAB ON THIS WEBSITE TO FIND OUT WHICH ACTIVITIES ARE ACTIVE AND WHICH ARE ON HOLD.
November 11 Guild Meeting is a ZOOM Session at 9:15 a.m.
Our upcoming November Virtual Art Gallery Show is being hosted on the CPPG website and will be the focus of the November 11, 2020 ZOOM Program meeting. Virtual ribbons will be awarded for First, Second and Third Place and 2 Honorable Mention. There will also be a People's Choice Award. Doree Voychick will be our judge and speaker where she will announce the winners and discuss what judges are looking for when they choose winners in a show. Look for your ZOOM link in your email several days before the meeting.
We are restarting the Laurel Manor (first and third Monday) and Lake Miona (fourth Wednesday) Workshops in November. The workshops will temporarily be run by Ruth Paul, Laurel Krizek and Dawn Mastrodonato.
Villages Recreation Department Rules:
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 no 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 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!
