Vets' Arts Studios

ARTS for ALL Wisconsin’s Vets’ Arts Studios were formed in partnership with the Veterans 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.

MADISON

Create solo and/or collaborative projects in watercolor, mixed media, sculpture, creative writing and more. Let your imagination soar! Contact Jenn Sluga at (608) 264-5342 to confirm eligibility. The target audience is military veterans seeking services at the Vet Center in Madison.

"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 Rhiannon or call (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."
