ASAP is very excited to partner with The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) to offer a free introductory drawing course for veterans, service members, military families, and caregivers. Over the course of six weeks, participants will learn the basics of drawing — including value, line, positive and negative space, perspective, and proportion. A variety of subject matters will be explored using pencil, charcoal, and other drawing materials. The sessions will be led by award-winning painter and teaching artist, Suzanne Stevens.


Upcoming Class

Please note that we are implementing an ongoing Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) system throughout 2019. In order to participate in our drawing class, all participants must complete a brief pre- and post-class assessment that measures the effects of ASAP's programming on skill-development and well-being. Your participation in our internal monitoring efforts will help us continuously learn from and improve our programs. If you have any questions about our M&E system, please do not hesitate to contact us at
