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.
