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!
The end of this summer brought devastating wild fires to the west coast including our own Rogue Valley. Many people in our valley lost their homes and businesses to the fires. Our chapter members wanted to do something to help the fire victims in some small way. We decided that since we are an art club, we would purchase gift certificates from a local art store with money donated by our members. The certificates would then be given to customers who were victims of the fires to help with their purchases. We teamed up with our local art shop "Scrappy Craft" and the plan went into action. They have given out over ten certificates and our chapter has received several thank you notes from the recipients. The photo here is one example of a nice note we received.
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.
2021 Painting Conventions
After a lot of thought, discussion and brain-storming the board has decided to cancel all future 2020 chapter meetings, the October seminar, the Bunco party and Christmas party. We are heartbroken to have to do this, but we feel it is better to keep our members and party guests healthy. We also wish to abide by the guidelines put forth from Governor Brown. Kathy is working on re-scheduling the Janice Miller seminar and information will be posted as it becomes available.
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.
