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.
If you would like to check us out in person, we welcome you to attend a chapter meeting & paint-in as a guest. You can attend as a guest twice, and we would love to meet you!
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!
Sunday, December 4 - 11:00 - Live Oak Grange - Come on and join the fun at this year's Christmas party. We will have an optional gift exchange and ornament exchange along with a fun game or two, and lunch will be provided. If you wish to participate in the gift exchange, please bring a wrapped gift with a minimum value of $20 - 25. If you wish to participate in the ornament exchange, bring a hand-painted (by you) ornament or holiday decoration wrapped in a plain brown bag.
We will also hold a cookie exchange for those who wish to partake. Bring a dozen or so of your favorite holiday cookies to share and take home some made by others.
We hope to see you at the party...it promises to be a fun time. Party begins at 11:00 and doors open at 10:00.
Saturday, January 28 - 10:00 - Live Oak Grange, Rogue River - We will be holding the "Rudolph Rumble" in January this year. Bring painting related items you don't want or need any more to be a part of our silent auction style white elephant in which club members use their points to bid on and "buy" items. In addition to this fun event, several members will be teaching background techniques. Bring the mixed-media journal you purchased for Sandy McTier's seminar or matte board or something similar to paint on and give these new techniques a try. This promises to be a relaxing and fun day. Bring your own table and lunch. Doors open at 9:00, and our business meeting begins at 10:00.
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.
