The creator of this site wishes to dedicate this work to her mother who inadvertently got her started in painting and the overall creative process which has led to many pursuits and joys in life.  Thanks to my mom, V.N.J.F. 1923-1993

          In the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota:  BHADA is an active group of painters meeting the third Saturday of each month, 9:30 a.m.  Monthly meetings are at Terra Sancta Retreat Center, Rapid City, SD. There is no meeting in July.
          Each meeting features a painting activity to either polish our existing skills or introduce a new skill to members. Visitors and new members are most welcome.
          Our education fund raiser is a Bunco Party in October with painted prizes for everyone. These funds are used to provide the group with painting education opportunities and community outreach.

          BHADA has chosen the International Memory Box Program as its community outreach project.
          BHADA membership is $20.00 per year. 
          A monthly newsletter is e-mailed to each member and posted on this web site.
