The Half Dozen Group of Artists was formed by 6 artists in 1941, and, since then, has nurtured hundreds of artists. See A Brief History for more information.
The HDG-Artists is a well established, welcoming, community art group where artists enjoy regular workshops, exhibiting, mentoring, socialising and much more. It is a non-elitist group where complete beginners work alongside lifetime professionals in an environment where there is no competition or comparison, just a shared love of drawing and painting, learning from and encouraging each other.
