Society of Decorative Painters: Chapter Activities
Local chapters provide opportunities to meet other painters and attend local seminars.  Membership in the Society of Decorative Painters is required to join a Chapter.  We belong to the White Mountain Decorative Painters in New Hampshire.  At each meeting, members are encouraged to bring recent painting projects to show at Palette Potpourri.  Viewing the painted pieces is always inspiring.  To find a chapter in your area, visit the SDP website.
