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


The Armed Services Arts Partnership offers this course two times this year in both the Hampton Roads, Virginia and DC locations. Classes will start during these months for each session.
