Program supports military artists

CAMP PENDLETON — The San Clemente Art Association is looking for a few good artists currently serving in the U.S. Military, for its new Military Artist Program, set to launch in August on base at Camp Pendleton. It will offer free on-base live art demonstrations at Camp Pendleton, free art supplies and art competitions just for members of the military

Participants don’t have to be skilled (or even artists) —  they just have to be interested. SCAA will help them get where they want to go with free classes and live demonstrations. The new program includes presentations on art journaling, setting up a paint palette, bringing doodles to life, and more.

Each military artist will receive art supply kits to get started drawing, free of charge. SCAA membership is also complimentary and includes art show competition fees; monthly club meetings and art demonstrations by Southern California artists; annual Plein Air painting competition fees in Paint San Clemente.

A highlight of the MAP is the Military Only Art Show and Competition with cash prizes awarded to the winners. It will take place at the San Clemente Art Association gallery at a date and time to be determined.
