In order to help the painters gain experience and facilitate creation, the organization board in association with Ai Force Officers’ College held exchange activities between the painters and air force soldiers. Thanks to these activities, many works about activities of air force soldiers were created. Being allowed to penetrate the daily activities and training of the soldiers helped the painters learn more about the life and hardships of Uncle Ho’s soldiers. It also provided valuable material and much inspiration to the painters to compose works on the topic of armed forces - revolutionary war.
 
Many painters depicted the national liberation struggle or the images of today's soldiers contributing in the cause of national construction and defense, studying and following Ho Chi Minh's ideology, morality and lifestyle.
 
This year’s camp attracted a relatively large number of painters of different ages, regions and professions compared to the previous years. The painters showed great enthusiasm and excitement in creating fine art works during the camp. Painter Le Huynh, who was the oldest painter at the 2022 fine art creation camp, has joined the fine art creation camp about armed forces - revolutionary war three times. “I was a soldier in the resistance war against the US; therefore, when I had been invited to participate in the creation camp about armed forces - revolutionary war, I had deeply moved and put a lot of enthusiasm into creating quality works, ” said painter Le Huynh.
 
Reportedly, Vietnam Military History Museum will cooperate with Vietnam Fine Art Association and Literature-Art Creation Supporting Center (the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism) to organize fine art creation camps and exhibitions about armed forces – revolutionary war. Quality works will be selected and proposed to the General Department of Politics for display at the Vietnam Military History Museum.
