Workshops & Exhibitions

Tell your story through art! No drawing or art experience required. Using photocopy, fire, and simple printing techniques, we’ll create works that express you and your personal experience. These abstract, collage works may include photographs, documents, and cloth that you bring, with text from memories you choose to share. With help from artist teachers and fellow veterans, you’ll create individual work to take home and contribute to our community war stories scroll, a new kind of graphic novel in cloth! We’ll send more information when you register.


You can attend more than once, but please register so we know you're coming!

Family members welcome, but anyone under 18 must be accompanied by parent or guardian at all times.

No events at the moment


We'll see- keep checking
