 The officers and committee chairmen Welcome YOU to the NEW Florida Decorative Artists Retreat (formerly Sunshine State Decorative Artists).

We are excited to renew friendships and meet new Painters.

 This year is going to be so much fun. Arti Gras is the theme. Saturday night I hope you come in your Arti Gras costume. Not required but oh so much fun to do. Be sure to bring your entry into the Arti Gras hand painted mask contest. Not to worry, we will have a mask and paint available if you forget yours.

 FDAR is a chapter of the Society of Decorative Painters, an international organization. MEMBERSHIP IS NOT REQUIRED to attend the retreat. If a member of SDP please provide your membership number for voting purposes.

 A limited number of beds have been booked so it’s suggested you register as soon as possible. We would like you to truly retreat and stay with us at Dayspring, however there are a number of motels in the area. Keep in mind it will still be the season and rooms will be limited. Those not sleeping at Dayspring will be charged a Commuter fee of $25 which includes lunch.
