Welcome to SFDAV
The Society of Folk & Decorative Artists of Victoria is a group of folk and decorative artists who meet every month on the 4th Sunday excluding December and January. We're happy and excited to report that with Covid restrictions easing, we are able to resume our meetings and workshops for 2021.
Our Mission is to create a sharing and caring Society where decorative painters of all levels, abilities and ages come together to share a mutual love of Folk and Decorative Art.
For the months of February, April, June, August, & October each year, a guest speaker or event will follow the general meeting. For the opposite months of March, May, July, September & November, workshop/s are held by visiting or member tutors.
Our first general meeting for the year, Sunday 28 February, will feature Heleen Van der Haar as guest speaker, sharing her photos and experiences of the Silo Art Trail and the Bald Archie awards.
Kathy Prestegar has been busy again, this time completing a David Jansen workshop A Russian Fairy Tale. A beautiful work which will give us some inspiration for the exciting new year ahead.
We were so sorry to hear that Committee Member and Librarian, Janette Eisenegger, was involved in a car accident just before our first committee meeting for the year. We're able to say she is recovering albeit with some significant injuries. We all wish you well with your recovery Janette and hope to see you soon.
Please check out the Activities Page for the workshops we have coming up. We'd love to make 2021 something special as we missed out on so much in 2020.
