Programs & Groups

DAHC groups are a free fun way to share your interest in the arts with others, to grow and learn together. Group members meet as often as the group members choose. They get together to share their recent work, critique each other's work, share tips and techniques, hold workshops and participate in group outings.

Membership is free and you don't have to be a member of DAHC to take part in a group (although we hope you will join and support the arts in our community).
