The Arts and Culture Commission is excited to be working with Veterans in Contra Costa County and offering a series of FREE self-portrait painting classes as a way of saying "Thank you for your service."

WHO: Any interested Veteran in Contra Costa County. No painting experience necessary. This 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.

WHAT: 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.

WHERE: Online

WHEN: 2021

TBA: Please check back here to REGISTER for workshop!
