Here's our second surprise! We are incredibly excited to announce our new platform for supporting our SDP Business Members! Our Business Committee has been hard at work to create an online marketplace to feature these businesses just in time for the holiday shopping season, and you can shop it here:

https://decorativepaintersacademy.com/marketplace/

This marketplace will be available all year round! It will include a directory of business members and individual pages for each business where you can learn more about them and shop their featured products.

We're excited to support small businesses during this season, and this Virtual Marketplace will be a fantastic destination to find gifts for your artsy friends and family members (and a few special somethings for yourself)!

This is our initial launch, so not all of our business members have been added yet--we are planning to release new listings each week. Keep coming back to discover your newest favorite businesses!

We're thrilled to announce our Virtual Retreat classes!

We made the difficult decision to turn our January Fredericksburg Retreat into a virtual event, but we're excited for the opportunities this opens up!

All the teachers originally scheduled for the Fredericksburg retreat will now teach their classes over Zoom on different days. This means you have the opportunity to take classes with all the teachers without making choices to take one class over another, and you can take as many classes as you would like!

ZIM'S NUTCRACKERS...A few days ago, someone posted a request for anyone having any of Zim's nutcrackers to paint. I've painted dozens over the years for my grandson and my supply is low. Today, I noticed the SNOWMAN on eBay so I'm sharing the post since I can't find the original request. Hope she finds this! Merry Christmas!
There are still spots left in these great ornament classes. Go to decorativepaintersacademy.com to check out the classes there.
There are just a few spots left in the "Gnome for the Holidays" class with Jamie Mills-Price on Saturday December 5th. Dont miss out, sign up today. Decorativepaintersacademy.com
Zoom and Bloom with me and let's finish 2020 with a brush in our hands. I will be teaching Lacy Shadows Rose, in oils, on December 29, 2020 from 10 am - 3 pm Mountain Time. Class size is limited so sign up today at rosecote.com.
I have just renewed. I was able to change the address on payment but unable to change on mailing address or could I get contact us to cooperate. Please change my mailing address to correspond with the payment address.
I have to say I was very disappointed that after signing up for one of the Fredericksburg retreat classes, I found out that I can buy the pattern from another source. I realize I’m paying for instruction online where I can talk to the instructor, but I would have thought that the designs being taught would be new designs for the retreat. I know that most convention require that the designs submitted are new and have not been taught previously. Signed, Very Disappointed 😔
my friend Marilyn Teegarden passed away not long ago. She had a little shop in Sapulpa, Ok. just outside of Tulsa. Her husband is having an almost give away sale November 13-14 from 9-4 JoSonja paints $2.00 a tube and brushes and two I say two sheds of wood and tin. Please come help clear this out. The address is 604 S. Muskogee St. Sapulpa, OK. If you need to call you can reach me at. 918-691-1603 He is also selling her painted pieces. She was a master russian Painter as well as a great Rosemaller and painted many other styles.

Thank you to all of you who took the Your Art Studio-the iPad class yesterday.

Hello Fellow Artists. I am hoping someone can help me figure out which magazine this painted tissue box was in. I've narrowed it down to the 1990s. I cannot find my issue anywhere. It quite possibly could be from "Paint Works" "Painting" "Decorative Painting"--I just cannot remember. I appreciate any information you are willing to share with me. Thank you
