What is Decorative Painting?
According to the National Society of Tole and Decorative Painting now
known as the Society of Decorative Painters (SDP)(www.decorativepainters.org) decorative painting is an art form that uses a variety of techniques to decorate
functional and non-functional surfaces. The use of patterns and freehand designs give a high degree of success without
formal training or any inherent drawing ability. With creativity, and practice, decorative painting enables artistic self-expression
and creative satisfaction.

Beginners are encouraged to join in and we guarantee you will learn a lot, have a good time painting and will enjoy the
fellowship of new painting friends. Classes are taught in a "paint along" style. Instructors will guide you step
by step as you create the featured project and before you know it, you will have created your own piece of art. Absolutely
