The National Veterans Art Museum will hold a two-hour graffiti making workshop with Hip-Hop/ Graffiti Artist and Marine Corps Veteran Mel L. Da Misfit.

Everyone is an artist designing and painting their own canvas using stencils, spray paint, acrylics, and markers. Works created at this workshop will remain on display at NVAM for the remainder of the month and will be on permanent display in the on-line exhibit available at http://www.nvam.org

Guests are encouraged to bring hats, t-shirts or other items they would like to graffiti. Light refreshments (juice and snacks) will be provided.
