Education is the mission and substance of the International Decorative Artisans League. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization, IDAL brings creative, artistic and business training to its members. The annual IDAL Convention has become the decorative finishing industry’s flagship educational event, gathering students and instructors from around the globe for multiple days of learning, sharing and artistic growth.
You can be a part of our mission! As a Partner in Education, 100% of your donation goes directly to help IDAL offer education programs. Donations help us with the extensive logistics involved in classroom setup, waste disposal and all the behind the scenes items that go into making your seamless classroom experience possible.
While some of our education funding comes from convention registration and class fees, that is not enough to cover the expenses related to classroom prep and waste disposal. We rely on the generosity of our members and friends to help defray classroom-related expenses.
Your donation to Partners in Education enables IDAL to continue to provide high quality educational programs for our members at the annual IDAL convention. It also is helping IDAL develop new educational programs and new delivery methods.
Partners in Education offers several donor levels (see below). Donors receive acknowledgement in the Convention Program, on official convention and expo signage, in Artisphere Online and on the IDAL website.
