Free Art Classes for Veterans

In gratitude for their service, the Arizona Artists Guild is continuing to offer free instruction to veterans in Drawing and Painting using pencils, charcoal, pens, watercolor and acrylic paint.

To register, veterans may contact David Bradley at (602) 828-4713 or email him at davlbradly@gmail.com. Space is limited.

The Arizona Artists Guild was founded in 1928 to promote the visual arts in the Phoenix Community. AAG was pivotal in the founding of the Phoenix Art Museum, as well as contributing to local military servicemen and women during World War II by creating pencil- sketch portraits for each. Today, AAG encourages the growth of working artists and offers art education through regularly scheduled classes and programs. More information is available at www.ArizonaArtistsGuild.net.
