Philosophy

Art is a positive force in the community.  It provides inspiration, healing and, in some cases, can pull the darkness out of our souls and cleanse our spirits.  All people have the creative spark to make art.

Our membership ranges from seasoned professional artists to hobbyists picking up a brush for the first time.  AHA encourages experimentation with different media and approaches to painting.  Not every piece of art is created by a brush.  Some are created with hands, feet, twigs or whatever works best.
