The Decorative Painter was the first and remains the most highly respected decorative painting magazine in the world. In its early years, its content helped define the art form of decorative painting and a multi-billion dollar industry grew up around the Society. The DP has always been a pioneer in identifying the needs and interests of serious decorative painters and its features, lessons and projects continue to set the standard in decorative painting excellence. Published quarterly, The DP is the official publication of the Society of Decorative Painters. With a long shelf life and the most passionate readership, The Decorative Painter is a classic. However, you won't find The DP on any newsstand. It is available exclusively to you as a member of the Society of Decorative Painters. Find out why decorative artists-from the novice to the most advanced-never throw away their Decorative Painter magazines.
