Vets' Arts Studios

ARTS for ALL Wisconsin’s Vets’ Arts Studios were formed in partnership with the Vet Centers in Madison and Wausau to engage veterans with physical, mental, emotional or behavioral disabilities in art-making experiences to accomplish specific goals, objectives, and outcomes.

We're Planning Post-Pandemic Programs. Will you help?

As the landscape of COVID-19 continues to shift and vaccination rates increase, ARTS for ALL Wisconsin is assessing options for future programming, including the potential return of in-person programming in some form. We are looking to you -- participants, teaching artists, families, support agencies, everyone -- to help guide our efforts to offer programs and support that meet the needs of our communities.

Please share your thoughts and suggestions online about the future of programming at ARTS for ALL. You can also download and complete a printed copy. Please mail paper copies to our Madison Art Center at 1709 Aberg Avenue, Suite 1, Madison, WI 53704.

"I have witnessed not only growth in creative skill as we build from basic to complex, but growth in social and emotional confidence."

Christy Grace, Teaching Artist Vets’ Art Studio - Madison

WAUSAU

Veterans in and around Wausau can make new connections with people who understand what it means to be a Veteran. For more information, please contact us at (608) 241-2131.

"Central and Northern Wisconsin don’t have a lot to offer service members by way of community. Our troops go overseas and experience a true sense of brotherhood, then lose that connection at home. The veterans who walk through the door and come to the Vets’ Art Studio are creating a community together. It lifts everyone’s spirits and helps us carry on, all over the therapeutic creation of art."
