About GCDA – Welcome to Our Colorful World!

Greater Cincinnati Decorative Artists (GCDA) welcomes you to our world of creativity!

Simply put, we like to paint!  Within our membership, you’ll find just about all the art mediums represented:  acrylics, oils, watercolors, colored pencil and pen and ink.  Our members include beginners through advanced, with some who teach and some who sell their artwork. But everyone paints for the joy and satisfaction of creating art.     

We’re always seeking to expand our artistic skills and learn new techniques, and so we schedule classes and workshops throughout the year.  In April, we host a three-day painting retreat in West Harrison, Indiana.  From whimsical to fine-art, beginner to advanced, there’s room for everyone who wants to create art and have fun doing it.

Effective 2020, the regular meetings will be held on the third Saturday of each month with some exceptions:  There are no meetings in April because of the annual painting retreat and in December because of the Christmas party for members.  We meeting in the Krumpe Center of St. Bartholomew Church located at 9375 Winton Rd., Springfield Township, Cincinnati, OH 

GCDA is a non-profit organization formed in September 1980 as an affiliated chapter of the Society of Decorative Painters (SDP). The purpose is to promote interest in decorative painting and provide programs to increase learning and skills in a relaxed and fun environment.   Membership includes the tri-state areas of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and beyond.

If you enjoy creating art – regardless of your skill level – come join the fun!
