The Nation's Capital Chapter
of
The Society of Decorative Painters
Decorative painting is a teachable art form because we use easily learned
methods and techniques. The use of patterns allows the beginning artist to be
successful without the ability to draw.

Decorative painting offers opportunities for artistic creative expression.   Tole
painting is the general term historically used to describe decorative painting on
tin surfaces.   Today we use the term "Tole" to describe decorative painting on
all surfaces
