Welcome and thanks for visiting the Lake Country Decorative Painters website! Our chapter is part of the National Society of Decorative Painters and this year (2017) we will celebrate our 21st Anniversary. We meet the second Thursday of each month and begin with a short business meeting, followed by a fun project. Non-members can attend two meetings before membership is required.
Our chapter has one fundraiser per year that allows us to bring in nationally known teachers for seminars, as well as local and regional teachers, all bringing new techniques and skills. These seminars are usually from one to three days and not only help us become better artists but are loads of fun!
Each September we hold a retreat on Canandaigua Lake, where we spend the whole weekend painting, eating, and socializing. We have so much fun!
Membership also offers discounts to many art supply retailers, as well as a beautiful magazines throughout the year with projects and painting tips, and the opportunity to attend the annual national convention.
I do hope that you will come and join us for a meeting or two. We would love to have you join us for all the fun! Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me. I'd love to help!
See you at a meeting!
