This workshop is a basic tutorial on using spray paint to make art! Each participant will create their own paintings on glossy card stock and stretched canvas. This workshop will take place outdoors so dress accordingly (and wear clothes you don’t mind getting stained). All materials will be provided, including an N95 mask.

About the Instructors

Joe Gagliardi is a Marine Iraq War Veteran turned professional artist. Under his brand, Ethereal Marine Art, he creates 1 of 1, unique spray paint art that appears differently depending on the light used to view the painting. His signature pieces involve invisible messages/meanings hidden within the painting that can only be viewed in certain lighting conditions. The difference in appearance is meant to invoke the internal mental/emotional struggles so many Vets encounter post-service, often while appearing normal and healthy to the outside world. He’s sold over 100 paintings locally and worldwide since launching Ethereal Marine Art in the fall of 2022, and lives in Annapolis with his wife and son. Check out his work here.
