Mask-Making Workshop

Active-duty service members and veterans are invited to participate in a program that fosters self-reflection and personal expression. Using the Face of Battle exhibition as a springboard, participants will create their own self-portrait masks. Art Instructor Melissa Walker will guide participants through this unique art activity, loosely adapting her work with service members as featured in a 2015 National Geographic magazine article.

The workshop is free, but registration is required. Please email NPGAccess@si.edu.
