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

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.

The Raindrop Chapter is an affiliate of the
