The Community Arts Impact Grant supports free photography workshops for veterans.
Breaking Barriers takes place July 8 through Aug. 12, 2022. It will have two formats: a course for beginners and one for advanced for photographers.
No experience is needed for beginners, but the advanced session requires previous photography experience or attendance at a prior Breaking Barriers workshop, according to a news release.
Both workshops are hosted online to increase accessibility.
The only camera that is required is a cellphone camera.
“So, the program was learning the techniques and approaches to taking photography into that same level of a professional photographer, with a cellphone,” Mikko Maki, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and past participants of Breaking Barriers, said in the release.
Registration is now open and will be available until July 1.
Veterans and their families are welcome to join in the workshops.
