Veterans Arts Studios

ARTS for ALL Wisconsin’s Veterans Arts Studios were formed in partnership with Vet Centers in Wisconsin to engage veterans with disabilities in art making experiences. Veterans programs are free, and expanding to welcome veterans with disabilities from the public as well as Vet Center clients.

This Spring we are bringing the Studios back to in-person sessions!

Session

Once-a-week sessions last six to eight weeks.
 

Vets Art Group

Visual Art with Jessi

Art making in a community setting allows veterans to create new connections with other participants, giving them freedom to share their stories in a creative and safe environment. This group will have an open-studio format with the opportunity to learn new art techniques.

At the start of each session there will be a short demonstration to introduce a new art technique. The teaching artist will also ensure time for participants to share their personal or acquired techniques with the group if desired.
