Southern Oregon Chapter of the Society of Decorative Painters
Welcome to the online home of Siskiyou Decorative Artists, the southern Oregon chapter of the Society of Decorative Painters.
We urge anyone interested in decorative painting to join us in developing their skills and meeting new friends.
Our chapter meets at the Live Oak Grange in Rogue River, Oregon. We usually meet on the fourth Saturday of each month, but please check the Calendar page for specific dates and meeting times.
We offer a variety of classes and seminars in several different mediums taught by both local and travel teachers. Please enjoy your visit to our website and come back often!
In order that we may safely hold chapter meetings again, we have implemented a temporary protocol to follow during these COVID-19 times. These measures will be in effect until our state is declared open by the governor. The measures to be followed at all indoor chapter functions include:
Each person is responsible for providing her own table. If you are unable to do so, let someone on the board know so we can help set up a Grange table for you. If you use a Grange table, you must cover it. We have thin table coverings available to purchase for $1 and they can be cut in half for two uses.
There will be no shared snacks or desserts.
Each person is responsible to collect and take home her own trash, including any trash from lunch. Bring a small trash bag to keep at your table.
Lunch should be eaten at your own table.
When you are seated at your own table, you don't need to wear your face mask. However, whenever you leave your table you must wear a face mask.
We will continue to hold our monthly raffles. All raffle items will be sprayed with a sanitary spray, and we ask that no one handle the items.
We hope these precautions are short-lived. We are trying to maintain a consistent policy until we are pandemic free. A healthy painter is a happy painter!
We have some wonderful travel teachers scheduled to teach two day seminars next year. Be sure to mark your calendars and save the dates. You don't want to miss them! More information will be posted as it becomes available.
2022 Painting Conventions
Saturday, October 23 - 10:00 - Live Oak Grange, Rogue River - Our own Judi Henshaw & Cindy Hayashi will team up to teach this cute tissue box cover at the October chapter meeting. The tissue box surfaces are from Pine Craft, and will be available for purchase at the August chapter meeting. The cost is only $6.00 each. Please see the prep instructions on the Members Only page. The line drawing will be handed out in class.
In addition to this fun project, we will be holding an indoor yard sale for chapter members. We will be selling some wonderful painting surfaces that have been donated to our chapter, so bring your checkbook or credit card and get ready for a great sale!
Chapter meetings begin at 10:00 with a business meeting followed by painting. Doors open at 9:00 for set up. Each person is responsible for providing and setting up her own table; however, if you need assistance please let us know and help will be provided. If you don't have a small table, please contact Kellie Pomeroy to reserve a small Grange table. If you use one of the Grange tables, you must supply a table covering. Tables will be set up 6 feet apart, and each person will be required to wear a face covering when not seated at her own table. Please bring your own lunch and snacks. This should be a fun day of painting and we hope to see you there!
Sunday, December 5, 2021 - 10:00 a.m. - Live Oak Grange, Rogue River - This year we will be incorporating a paint-in to our annual Christmas party. Karen Damerow will be teaching this cute Shara Reiner project. Please see the Members Only page for project information. In addition to painting, we will hold a gift exchange with no stealing due to COVID concerns. The chapter will supply lunch and a special dessert. Please plan to bring your own table or arrange to use a Grange table, and wear your mask when not seated at your table. We're hoping to have a fun and safe party with a few changes to keep us socially distanced. We hope to see you there!
We generally meet the 4th Saturday of the month at the Live Oak Grange in Rogue River. Doors open at 9:00 & meetings begin at 10:00. Check the Calendar page for specific dates & times.
