About Southern Maryland Decorative Painters
The Southern Maryland Decorative Painters ("SMDP") is a group of approximately 50 painters who get together regularly to paint, share ideas, teach and learn from each other. SMDP also paints to serve the community. [Currently we paint ornaments and decorate one of the Hospice Trees or Wreaths in either St. Mary's, or Calvert County, as well as donate regularly to area food banks.]

Our Group was established in 1996 by a few men and women who wanted to promote decorative painting in Southern Maryland. SMDP is based in Charlotte Hall, MD. We  meet monthly at the Charlotte Hall Library, 37600 New Market Road, Charlotte Hall, MD 20622. Our members come from the surrounding Maryland counties of Charles, Calvert, St. Mary’s, Prince Georges, Anne Arundel, and Montgomery County. SMDP has members who come paint with us from Northern Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Maine, California even as far away as England too!

SMDP is a non-profit Group whose mission is to promote decorative painting. Dues are affordable, at just $20 to join.

As a member of SMDP you can broaden your knowledge of decorative painting through classes and seminars, build new friendships, be involved in community service projects and share your passion to paint with others.

If you love to paint, or would like to learn to paint, please contact us. We’d love to have you as our guest before joining, and we’re sure to make you feel welcome when you decide to join us!
