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...

It’s hard to believe that summer is officially over. Labor Day finds me busy, as I’m sure all of you are, prepping pieces for our next seminar. Also, painting pieces for the Baskets and Brunch.

I’d like to thank Joyce Wetmore for leading the program last month. It’s always good to go back to where we started and practice our brush strokes!

September 24th is our next meeting. I’m looking forward to painting a Halloween ornament with Darla Peck.

I hope to see you all on 9/15 & 9/16 for the Sandi Greco seminar. Until then, I hope you enjoyed your Labor Day weekend with family and friends.

Seminar Report…

      We have had some great seminars this year!!  Thank you to Sandi Greco who was our travel teacher earlier this month.  We all had a great time and learned some new techniques!  If you took the seminar and need some paint to finish your piece, bring some paint pots to the chapter meeting and you can take enough home to complete your project.

As we start looking forward to 2019's seminars we currently have our spring seminar booked with Chris Haughey for May 18 & 19, 2019.  I am currently taking suggestions for possible teachers in the fall 2019.  Please do a little research on your suggestion and bring some examples of what that teacher has done.  I plan to have us vote on possible artists at the October meeting.
