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.

President's Message...

What a great meeting we had in October! Thank you, Sandy Phillips, for teaching your beautiful glass bulbs. We have another fun program planned for November lead by Jane Williams. I’m looking forward to it!

Thank you, Mickie, for all the time and effort researching venues for our Christmas party. We voted to celebrate on Sunday December 9th at Delmonico’s. We will again order off the menu then enjoy an optional Chinese auction. Feel free to invite your family and friends to join in the fun!

It is time to renew your membership for 2019. We have two fantastic seminars planned so fill out your membership form and get it to Sandy Kelsey, so you don’t miss out. We all worked hard this year to make money for these classes. I can’t wait to take advantage of our efforts and learn some new techniques!

It seems hard to believe that 2018 is coming to an end. With the new year comes change. Thank you to members who volunteered to hold board positions. We need leaders in order to make things happen! Please plan to attend our November meeting to vote on our new slate of officers.

Note- our November meeting is early because of Thanksgiving. I hope to see all of you on Saturday 11/17 @ 12:30.

Until then,

Joyce Kinville


Seminar Report…


Chris Haughey Seminar …..May 18th & 19th 2019. Make sure you mark your calendar now.

I’m also working on contacting teachers for future seminar consideration. Anytime you have an interest in a teacher you might want to have come to the chapter. Please make sure you send it in!

I’d also like to let you all know that I’m taking a break from LDA offices. I have this tendency to over volunteer myself and have to cut back for a while on some of my activities. I have a very busy year ahead of me and need more time to get some family things done. I would like to encourage all the membership to continue to step up and help where ever you can with the chapter. Many hands make light work!!
