Comment | More

The early-registration deadline is April 30 for the 25th Annual International Decorative Artisans League (IDAL) Convention and Exposition, scheduled for July 21-25 at the Oregon Convention Center, Portland, Ore.

Programs and activities at the event will include a range of hands-on classes and workshops presented by expert artisans, offering instruction on portfolio-grade finishes, money-making techniques, and the opportunity to try multiple new materials in a few days, the organization said.

The convention and show also will offer peer-to-peer networking on business tips and opportunities, and information on innovations in decorative finishing and new products.

Highlights will also include a Mt. Hood/Columbia River Gorge tour, hosted by the Cascade Artisans Guild; the 25th Annual General Meeting and Champagne Toast; and the Expo Grand Opening and Welcome Reception.

Also planned is the IDAL Philanthropic Mural Project, in which organization members volunteer in the creation of a mural. The recipient of the 2010 project is the William Temple House, which offers counseling and other assistance programs for individuals and families in crisis. To schedule volunteer times, participants are asked to contact Kara McGhee, philanthropic chair, at kara@karaMcGhee.com.

The convention hotel is the Red Lion Inn, 1021 NE Grand Ave., Portland.

IDAL is an international non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the art of stenciling and related decorative arts. Membership provides opportunities for artistic and professional growth through education, certification, public awareness, and networking, the organization says.
