Empowered Legacy: Preserving Military Stories Workshops

Hylton Performing Arts Ctr, CVPA Shared Classroom

3 - 17

Discover the transformative journey of creative expression through mixed media art. Embark on a meaningful exploration of crafting personal stories or honoring the legacies of those who are military-connected. Family members may create based on their own experience or that of any military-connected member of their choice. In this three-part workshop, create a mixed media timeline using paints, paper, photographs, and other objects encompassing a conceptual layering of ideas, emotions, and narratives. Tina Claflin, a retired Coast Guard Veteran, owner of Halcyon Reflections LLC, and a story organizer will guide military Veterans, Servicemembers, or their family members in documenting and preserving these stories. 

This workshop series is open and FREE to military Veterans, Servicemembers, and military family members; children ages 14 and up may participate alongside their parents. Space is limited.
