ARE YOU INTERESTED IN DECORATIVE PAINTING? We are a group of decorative painters “The Loyalist Decorative Painter’s Guild” who meet the second Wednesday of each month at the Carrying Place United Church on Old Portage Rd in Quinte West.
Whether you are new to painting or a pro, we are here to provide a meeting ground for those who are interested in painting.
Each month we teach a technique class. Some of our past meetings included fabric painting, glass painting, water color cards, painting on soap, small still life, Zentangle, painting on glass etc. There is a small fee for these classes payable to the teacher to cover supplies; we try to keep it around $5.00.
Our membership fee for the year is $25.00 (Sept – June) For new members only, for the months of April – June - $12.50 Our meetings are 6:30pm until 9:00-9:30pm.
Meet our “studio owner” members. You are welcome to take part in our “Day Long” seminars, which are taught by our member-teachers (optional).
You are also welcome to take part in our “Big Brush” seminars which are “traveling teachers”, hired to come for one and two day seminars. Some of our past “Big Brush” seminars have been taught by Esa Nieminen, Brenda Levert, Gladys Neilson, Sharon McNamara Black, Wendy Fahey, Joann McLean, Lydia Steeves ... Please see our website under “Guest Teachers” for more information. Fees apply for these classes and these classes are also optional.
We are contributors to – Camp Trillium (formerly Garratt’s Island) which is a childhood illness support center. We also contribute to the “Memory Box” program for bereaved families of infants.
Feel welcome to come out, be our guest, bring a friend/friends (no charge except to the teacher for supplies used) and be inspired, consider becoming a member. Your first visit with us is always free.
