Using the AWA workshop method, AWA facilitator, Suzanne S.

Veterans, and/or families of, are welcome regardless of what era they served, skill level, or genre of choice. The AWA method can be applied to all art making modalities. We are requesting that people attend both workshops as they build on each other. No one is made to read their work publicly. Support as audience is encouraged.
