June paint-in with Bobbie Redington & June seminar with Maureen Baker

June Paint-In and Pot Luck!

Chapter Members will be getting together after the June meeting to paint NAUTICAL THEME TABLE DECORATIONS for this year’s convention banquet, coordinated by Bobbie Redington.

Bobbie is asking chapter members to paint at least 8 small nautical themed ornament size items, one per each place setting of 8.

Each table place setting will different.  Place settings will include a lunch sized gift bag filled with art supplies & treats.  Our hand-painted items will be displayed outside the bag to show off our handy work but should be sized to fit inside the gift bag for guests to take away.

Surface ideas include glass ornaments, wood cutouts, wood boxes, small canvas, drift wood, reclaimed wood, seashells, small ceramic, glass or metal containers. 

What to Bring:  Please bring your own painting supplies (brushes, paint, etc.) Bobbie will bring a variety of blank surfaces along with sample ideas but if you have surfaces and ideas already, please bring them too!

We will be sharing ideas and working together to get as many finished as possible.  We are planning for around 40 tables so we need a lot of these small painted gifts!

For those of you who have already finished items, please bring them to June’s meeting.  Bobbie will collect finished items through July!

We will also have a Pot Luck Lunch.  Please bring an item to share along with serving utensil if needed.  Bobbie will provide paper products, ice tea and lemonade!

We, the Raindrop Chapter of Portland, Oregon, were organized in 1978 by a group of dedicated painters. 

Advancing the art of decorative painting and friendship!

Our chapter meets at the Milwaukie Lutheran Church or the Union Hall in Tualatin on the first Saturday every-other-month. Decorative painting is a diverse art form utilizing a variety of techniques and media to decorate functional and non-functional surfaces. Tole painting is the general term historically used to describe decorative painting on tin surfaces, but today we paint on any surface including wood, glass, fabric, canvas and tin. We urge anyone who is interested in decorative painting to join us in developing their talents. We offer a variety of classes and seminars in many different mediums. Please enjoy your visit to our web site and come back often.
