Walls & Cases: Tole Painting by the Capitolers
Capitolers is a group of people who share the same interest and love of art. We are a not-for-profit organization with a membership of over 150 painters of various levels. At meetings throughout the year our local teachers provide painting instructions in a wide array of mediums. Capitolers also host many seminars in which we invite teachers from all over North America to come and provide painting instructions.
Capitolers have helped to provide community services in our area such as ornaments for the Ronald McDonald House and for the Pryun House. We have painted murals on walls for schools and we also provide hand painted boxes to families at St. Peter’s Hospital through our Memory Box Program. Several members of Capitolers painted and helped to sew a quilt for the Cancer Society to auction off as a means of fundraising and hats were painted and donated to the Gilda’s Club. Some members have even painted ornaments and drums for the White House that were used to help decorate the Blue Room.
