The DecoArt Helping Artist Program, founded in 1988, was designed to create an open working relationship between DecoArt and the authors, teachers, and designers of our industry. To fulfill this objective, DecoArt provides the Helping Artist with a number of products and services. DecoArt hopes to earn the respect of the artists for our products and our company in the hopes that artists will use and help promote DecoArt products in the industry.

Survey participation and communication
Phone and written surveys are conducted from time to time to discuss how our products are performing for you in your area. We want to hear from our Helping Artists and we will listen to what you say about our products. Therefore, we encourage your input and evaluation of our programs. We also invite you to come say hello to us at trade shows and let us know what you’re doing with our products.
Helping Artists are asked, from time to time, to demonstrate for distributors or for us at shows.
