DELPHOS — The Delphos Area Art Guild has rolled out a new year-long endeavor.
Artclub@DAAG, a social club for all levels of artisans who want to learn by talking, critiquing and creating together, will meet the last Tuesday of the month beginning June 24.
Some projects will be pure fun, some will be interactive with others involving world-wide artists and clubs and others may be more thought-provoking and challenging.
Participants bring an art piece to showcase each month and snacks and drinks will be rotated. Speakers will occur intermittently and an artclub@DAAG exhibit can take place once a year if members are interested.
The annual cost is $20 per month and participants must be DAAG members.
Open Mic Nite is offered from 6-8 p.m. on the second Thursday in June and July and the first Thursday in August at The Grind restaurant in Delphos. All are welcome and free entry. This is especially geared towards families, teens and more who want to have a place to hang out and enjoy some local bravery and talent. Poets, musicians, comedy, theatre — all are encouraged.
The guild will also offer summer programming for all ages.
