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.
