Veterans Guided Open Studio Program

Every Saturday, 1-4pm

The program provides a calm, open studio approach with guidance in drawing and painting by an experienced instructor and is open to all veterans. No prior experience making art is needed. At the museum, veterans also participate in occasional tours of major exhibitions. Set aside a regular time to meet, and ensure time is taken each week to create in a safe and social atmosphere. This studio program will provide studio space for artists to work independently but with a teacher on hand to provide guidance when requested.

For more information, please contact Kip Bradley at 912-790-8823.

Free Veterans Intro to Oil Painting Class

Learn special skills according to your interest, or just have a new experience under the guidance of a helpful teacher. Intended for the absolute beginner, or intermediate artists looking for new skills.
