Learn several paint-pouring techniques and then create a one-of-a-kind work of art during this Veterans Creative Expression Workshop led by Diamond Johnson! All supplies will be provided, and no experience is needed. The group will also get a guided tour of the museum’s current exhibit.

This FREE program is open to all veterans and current service members. A spouse or other family member (age 16 or older) may take the workshop with their military member, but all participants must register in advance.

PLEASE NOTE: Registration closes when workshop is full.


About the Series:

OMAM launched this new monthly series in 2023 to provide a free and unique experience to veterans. The hour-long program includes an in-depth look at the art on display and a hands-on art activity using various tools and materials.

About Diamond Johnson, Curator of Youth & Outreach Programs

"My love for art began in Fayetteville, North Carolina, as I perused landscape painting as a child. My love for nature grew during high school as I obsessively photographed various islands throughout Japan. My love for our community heightened after my experiences as an art educator, Meals on Wheels coordinator, VPK volunteer, and art gallery assistant. As a daughter of a US Army 82nd Airborne veteran, I am so honored and grateful to work with the Ormond Memorial Art Museum & Gardens. Their mission and impact within our community inspire me to create and share positive experiences with Volusia County, and beyond!"
