Professional Practices for the Visual Artist
Mr. Benjamin Hickey led a discussion in the Malkin Gallery on November 2, 2014, for DAA members who were interested in expanding their reach in the visual art community. Notes are attached here!

Botanical Watercolor Workshop
with Dr. Janice N. Dean
DAA members and guests brought their watercolor palettes, pencils, paper, and enthusiasm to St. John's Episcopal Church on Saturday, September 20 from 9:00 - 2:00 and enjoyed learning about Honey's techniques. A successful botanical artist and former educator, Honey Dean is uniquely qualified to share her expertise with us. Honey provided the plant materials; participants brought their willingness to watch and learn!
The cost was $20 per member. All proceeds were donated back to DAA. Thank you, Honey!
