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...

Wow, what a full meeting we had in January! I am glad we didn’t have a program planned which gave us time to discuss the business of our club. Thank you all for your opinions, suggestions, and for volunteering where needed. We accomplished so much and have a great schedule for 2019!

We have wonderful programs planned for the February and March meetings. See more info in this newsletter.

The projects have been chosen for our next seminar with Chris Haughey on May 18th and 19th. I hope everyone can attend one or more of the classes. The board has approved a $15 coupon for each member to use toward a seminar. This should help to make the event more affordable.

On July 27th we will again be having a picnic at Barb Dunn’s house. Our “Brown Bag” pieces will be exchanged, we will have a project and or course have lots of goodies to snack on!

A fall seminar is being planned with Lisbeth Stull. More on that when it is confirmed.

Barb Dunn and her committee have volunteered to chair our Christmas party this year. Date and venue to follow.

My head is still spinning with all the things we have planned for the year. With all of your help, we can have lots of fun together!

Next meeting is early – February 16th. Door opens at 12:30 with a short meeting at 1:00 (I promise). Program to follow.

See you there,

Joyce Kinville
