CURRENT EXHIBITION & CALL TO ARTISTS

Several talented artists are volunteering their expertise to teach art to soldiers as they transition to normal military and family life after deployment.

 

The El Paso Museum of Art, Plein Air Painters of El Paso, Pastel Society of El Paso, Rio Bravo Watercolorists, and other El Paso community sponsors are all participating in this program to provide amazing art to our military families. Military sponsorship is provided by Ft. Bliss Morale, Welfare &

April was all about painting with EPAA member Nina Walker. Here is what she said about the program:

 

It was a really great experience. I met some really wonderful people and had the opportunity to share my art world with them. They were very excited that they could actually paint a painting and do well at it. I believe that several of the people who attended will continue. There was one person who did have some experience with watercolors and I believe that I converted her to oils. Frank Valdez helped me with the workshop and proved to be invaluable. He was a tremendous help as the students had to come and go with their appointments. Frank was able to help me with keeping the class going and catching people up when they would return.  He himself is a veteran and knew how it went with the people who participated. It was a very rewarding experience, it was a privilege to be able to connect and share with our soldiers.

 

EPAA is looking for organization sponsors, volunteers, and other interested artists to support this important program for our soldiers and their families. For more information, please contact John Robbins at (915) 309-1891 or Gary Crossland at (915) 534-7377.

 

 

The next general meeting is Sunday, May 17th from 2-4pm at the Crossland Gallery. Hear all of the latest art-related news and then sit back and enjoy a drawing demonstration by Carmen Navar. For more details, visit Meet/Learn/News.
