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.

Seminar General Information

What: Our Chapter holds two "Travel Teacher" seminars per year. One in the spring and one in the fall.  We bring in nationally and internationally known decorative artists to conduct 2 day painting seminars for our members.   Both members and non-LDA members are welcome to attend.  This is a really great service that the chapter offers to painters for a really inexpensive cost!

Surfaces:  All surfaces that you paint on for the seminar are your responsibility to find and pay for.  Usually the teachers don't have particular items that you have to paint on so any surface that fits the pattern will work.  If there is a specific piece that must be ordered the chapter may take the lead and order surfaces for prepaid orders.

 Cost:  The price of attending one of our seminars is a reasonable $35 per day that you attend.  Non-LDA members must pay an additional $10/day fee ($45 per day total).  This fee covers your instruction from the teacher and the pattern packet.   All fees must be paid in advance with your registration to the seminar. Occasionally the fee might be slightly more depending on specifics of the seminar.  

Time:  All seminars are held on Saturdays & Sundays  from 9am - 5pm.

Lunch:  Attendees bring their own lunch.  People often bring "goodies" to share too.

 Questions?   If you have any questions on upcoming seminars please contact our Seminar Chair, Lory  by email:  [email protected]
