Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Military Art Program Australia has cancelled all remaining art classes for the 1st term of the 2020 arts program. We will continue to follow the Government Health guidelines and when it is safe to resume classes we will communicate to our veteran community.
While we anticipate this break from scheduled classes will last some months, MAPA will continue to consider how we can support our veteran community through art. If you have suggestions and ideas for us during this period of isolation, please email us at
Until we resume, we hope that all our veteran community, our artists, our volunteers and all their families and loved ones stay safe.
Oh and while your are isolating, get creating!
Whether it's sculpture, creative writing, painting in oil, watercolour, ink, pastel and acrylic, drawing using biro, pencil or charcoal, photography or wood burning, pottery and ceramics, whatever you're into, we cover all of these and a few more.
Our classes are free for current and former serving ADF members and are taught to suit all levels by emerging and award winning artists, some with a military background.
Programs are usually released 2 to 3 times a year and distributed via our website and through Defence networks.
Our program releases are listed on this page regularly, so register your interest by enrolling and don't forget to join our mailing list to stay up to date!
