Society of Decorative Painters

Society of Decorative Painters We are an international community of artists working to spread the appreciation for and knowledge of decorative painting.
The National Society of Tole and Decorative Painters, Inc., was organized in 1972 to stimulate worldwide interest in and appreciation for decorative painting; to recognize diversity of and excellence in the art form; and to serve as the resource center for all aspects of decorative painting. Now known as the Society of Decorative Painters, the Society boasts a worldwide family of painters with interests as varied as the places in which they live.
(322)

We believe that anyone can learn to paint, and painting together with friends and family enriches lives. If you are a painter, you already know the value that art can bring to a life. We strive to spread that message throughout the world, and bring the joy of painting to everyone. SDP offers a variety of programs and opportunities for individual painters, painting chapters, and painting businesses. Our members receive a host of benefits and contribute to the continued growth of their favorite art form. We publish the award-winning The Decorative Painter magazine, host SDP's Annual International Conference and Expo, offer the world-renowned SDP Certification program, and much more. Learn more at www.decorativepainters.org/membership.php.

Mission: To stimulate worldwide interest in and appreciation for decorative painting; to recognize the diversity of and excellence in the art form; and to serve as the educational resource center for all aspects of decorative painting.

Saw the email canceling the retreat in Wichita. I did not see anything about what is happening with certification judging. Is there any changes?
I have just moved. My packers must have thrown away a box that should have stayed. I am looking to replace my books by (I think) Deloris Severson. She painted pine cones, dried foliage, leaves, in oils on wood. Please if you have or know a sort, let me know. I was looking forward to paint (finishing) her designs. I can’t believe someone tossed my prized books. I wonder what else I will discover is missing Message me Thanks Barbara George
How much are the dues to the Society?
Can someone tell me of any chapters in western Pennsylvania? Thanks
Doesl the Society still have a scholarship program? The last reference I found was from 2014/15. Thanks.
Have the details for the next annual meeting and election been announced yet?
Haven't received my email with the gnome pattern above yet. Just checking on it. [email protected]
Is the group Cotton Tolers still meeting in the West Tennessee area?? Thanks for any info!
No live feed today? How is the certification class going?
Where are the pictures for projects for the class retreat in Fredricksburg Tx? I don't see anything but a button to pay for the retreat>
I’m a volunteer at the Frank Lloyd Wright house in College Hill. We participate every year in the Holiday Table displays at Mark Arts. This year we are recreating The peacock room from The Imperial Hotel in Tokyo which FLW was building at the same time as The Allen House. There is picture we have of a fresco piece which was hung above the room. It’s an old picture but u can see the design and the colors. You can take some liberty with the colors n design as long it’s a fairly close representation of original. The display area we have is only 10 x 8 and we have two walls. Not exactly sure how we will display the fresco. Maybe u have some ideas. The display needs to be done by November 5 or 6. I know it’s not much time but we will be happy with a representation of the fresco. There’s no need to be overly detailed. I am attaching the only color picture of the fresco I have been able to find We are obviously a non-profit organization and would need a very reasonable bid to luaus this. But the exposure for your company would be tremendous. We would include your name and company on the table sign and it would also appear in the program. Hundreds of people visit the Tables every year. Please let me know if you have questions. Thx so much. Lisa Steiner. 316 648 6270
