AC5’s “About Face” Painting Workshop For Veterans at NIAD Art Center April 23 + April 30 //

The Arts And Culture Commission of Contra Costa County is offering a two-day painting workshop at no cost to local veterans.

The workshops are open to any interested veteran in Contra Costa County. No painting experience isnecessary. It is a chance for self-expression. Nothing is being sold. There is no registration fee nor material fee for Veterans who live in Contra Costa.

This is an in-depth acrylic painting class. You will be asked to explore your experience as a veteran and tell your story of transitioning from military life through a self-portrait or other subject as an avenue of self-expression. Artist John Kleber or Artist Victoria Bianco and artist/Veteran Wesley Evans will lead you through a series of painting exercises over two days that will result in a finished 18” x 20” painting.
