Welcome to our website!

Citrus Ridge Decorative Artists (CRDA) is a local chapter of the Society of Decorative Painters (SDP). We received our charter in 2009. The chapter welcomes painters of all levels and follows the guidelines of the SDP. Our chapter is involved in outreach to the Hanson House of Highlands County and the Baptist Children's Home of Polk County—sharing through art.

We welcome you to join us to pursue and enhance your talents as a decorative artist. CRDA general meetings are the 4th Saturday of the month. We meet in Lake Wales. The business meeting starts at 10:00 am and is followed by a painting program/workshop. Check the newsletter to see where the meeting is to be held and what is happening for lunch each month. Breakfast goodies and coffee are generally provided.

We are currently meeting at Water's Edge located at 10 Grove West in Lake Wales, FL. Water's edge is a beautiful retirement facility.

Five of our CRDA members volunteered to paint a mural at a school that was in desperate need for community help and support. We took lots of pictures from start to finish. Visit the Photo Gallery to view all the photos and information.
