AmyWelcome to the Colored Pencil Painters Guild (CPPG) and thank you for visiting. As our name implies we are a group of artists who are interested in colored pencil as a primary art medium. Our membership consists of a full range of skill levels from beginner to accomplished published artists. As a group we enjoy sharing our knowledge and experience and take pleasure supporting each other’s efforts. 

We extend an open invitation to you to join us at any of our meetings or other events. Check out the About Us link for more information regarding the organization. Contact numbers can be found at the Contact Us link.
