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.
February 10 - Doree Voychick ZOOM Session at 9:15 a.m.
Doree will be covering planning your value scale prior to beginning your painting. Every color has a value. Some colors are naturally lighter than others, but every color can be adjusted to be lighter or darker. Your artwork needs value balance. Plan to join us as Doree programs are always informative, educational, and entertaining.
Critique Session on ZOOM on February 17 at 9:30 a.m.
Doree will be holding a Zoom Critique on Wednesday, February 17. If you have a picture you have been either working on or completed and want to get advice from Doree, this is your chance! Bring your painting with you to the zoom session for your critique. As this is a great learning experience, please feel free to attend just to listen and learn from her comments.
