CreatiVets takes art to VCU

November 10, 2017

In June 2017, CreatiVets and Virginia Commonwealth University partnered to provide an immersion art program designed specifically for veterans.

Through the program, eight veterans embarked on a journey to learn conceptual-based art techniques to heal their unseen wounds of war and learn skills to cope with combat-related trauma. The Intro to Art for Veterans course was led and taught by other veterans and introduced students to a wide variety of mediums including writing, woodworking, and photography.
