42nd SDP International Conference & Expo
Town & Country Resort • San Diego, CA
May 12-17, 2014
Set a course for Painting Adventure!
Learn, Grow, Meet New Friends—Just Have Fun!
SDP launches the 42nd International Conference and Expo with a new location and a new attitude. The fun starts May 12, 2014 at the Town and Country Resort, San Diego, California.
In the pages of this year’s Conference Special you will find a wide variety of classes, representing acrylic, oil, watercolor, colored pencil, and other mediums. Classes range from beginner to advanced.
(If you haven’t already renewed your membership for 2014, be sure to do so before submitting your conference registration to take advantage of the early-bird registration fee.)
Visit the Class Registration page to register online, or download the conference registration form (to mail or fax your form). Remember, class registration is first-come, first-serve, so don't delay! And for those of you who want to save some money for the end of the year, we are happy to offer our half now/half in March split-payment plan once again this year (available when paying by credit card).
We are also bringing back Special Events and Tours. We have five great special events with Jo Sonja Jansen mda, vgm, Shara Reiner cda, Willow Wolfe, Golda L. Rader, and the painting duo Jamie Mills-Price and Kim Hogue cda. The fun begins Monday, May 12th.
There is more fun to be had outside of the resort, as well. SDP has added two great tours to the program. On Sunday, May 11th consider a dinner cruise on San Diego Bay, or on Saturday, May 17, visit the San Diego Zoo.
Don’t forget to enter the 2nd Annual SDP Foundation Juried Art Exhibition. Deadline for entry is January 17, 2014.
This opportunity is open to all decorative painters. The entry fee is $10 per entry for members, and $25 per entry for non-members. Semi-finalists will be exhibited at the Conference.
