A reminder that Central Virginia Watercolor Guild is found online at www.CVWG.art.
As we enter mid-January, the Omicron variant of COVID is spreading fast and furious. Your CVWG Board is continuing to monitor Department of Health advisories. At the moment, we intend to offer our monthly meetings and programs at in-person meetings. We will advise our members by email if we need to re-plan any event.
A Correction– Revised Dates for Workshops by Juliette Swenson
Back in a post in November, we cited an incorrect date for the next workshop by member-artist Juliette Swenson. That post should have read:
I am pleased to offer watercolor painting classes lasting a few weeks. These will specialize in animals and flowers. I have taught for some years now and have a large open room in which to teach in Staunton. My next series of classes starts on February 17 and run until March 10 on Thursday evenings from 5-7pm. Take just one class or all.
Member Meeting on January 24 at 12:30 PM
Our first member meeting of the year will be on January 24. This is still being planned for in-person at our usual time– 12:30 pm gathering and social time followed by the meeting at 1:00 pm– and place– the Fellowship Hall behind Church of Our Savior on Rio Rd in Charlottesville. See our Meetings page for more information.
The monthly Challenge! theme is A Portrait and the program will feature member-artist Jane Skaftke addressing a common problem area for so many of us, Negative Painting Techniques. You can view the full year of meetings, programs, and Challenge! topics on our Meetings page.

Let’s start the new year by getting back into watercolor painting! I am offering new classes. Details are on my website for opportunities to learn more about watercolor painting.Peg Sheridan
Our Web Pages Have Been Updated
Our webmaster has been busy updating our various pages. Please take a few minutes and “surf” our pages to see what you might find. Of special note:
- We’ve added a Donate button to all our pages in the event you want to help CVWG achieve our mission and broaden our reach in central Virginia communities.
- Meetings, programs, and our Challenge! themes are updated for the new year.
- Our new Board of Directors and officers are working on our behalf.
- In lieu of being able to safely offer our customary number of workshops, we have expanded the online workshops page and are looking to list our member-artists who offer in-person, online, or travel based workshops.
Let us know if you don’t see something you want and our webmaster will see what he can do to bring it to the benefit of our Guild.
We’d Love to Hear From You!
