New England Traditions is a five-day decorative painting retreat featuring 120+ classes and a painters’ trade show. This event is a collaboration of the members of the New England Chapters Council.

They have celebrated New England Traditions decorative painting conventions since 1999, offering painting classes in a variety of mediums: acrylic, oil, watercolor, colored pencil, pastel, and mixed media. Experienced teachers welcome students from beginner through veteran abilities.

Penns Woods Painters is a sister chapter to us.  A member of either chapter you can take advantage of all the seminars and programs at the member price without joining the other chapter.  It is a great way to expand our opportunities and also make new painting friends.

SDP is a global community for painters and aspiring artists whose mission is to share ideas, develop skills and participate in a fun, creative environment. It recognizes diversity and excellence in all styles of painting.

Chapters are the heart of SDP's membership. By becoming a member of one of its more than 200 Chapters, you can paint and socialize on a regular basis through meetings, seminars, community service activities and others events.  WMDPG is one such chapter with its origins in New Hampshire.
