Leatherstocking Decorative Artists

What is Decorative Painting?
   Decorative painting is a diverse art form utilizing a variety of techniques and media
  (types of paint) to decorate functional and non-functional surfaces. Because of
 certain teaching methods used in learning how to paint -- decorative painting is a 
   really easy art form to learn. The use o patterns  created by other artists and 
   freehand designs allow a high degree of success without long years of academic
       training or inherent drawing ability.  

We are now on Facebook  come like our page Leatherstocking Decorative Artists.

President’s Message

I hope all of you are enjoying your summer, especially now that it is actually warm and we’ve had some sunshine too!! Many thanks to Barb Dunn for hosting the chapter picnic again. We all had a wonderful time and fun dyeing and painting on the silk scarves. We even had a surprise visit from Donna Sculley!! For anyone who missed the picnic – we had lots of dye left over, so for the August program we will again make the dyes available and we will do another project with them. Just look for the information on the program in this newsletter.

The next seminar will be in September with Roxanne Puchalski   September  16 & 17,  2017. This seminar will be held at the Oneida County Farm & Home Center, where we usually meet. The form for the seminar is included with this newsletter. A copy was also sent out at the beginning of July too. Please get your forms soon. If you have any questions please contact Barb Dunn.

See you at the meeting!!
