Where does one turn after placing their life on the line for their county? Whose life has suffered internal wounds that cannot be healed with bandages, whose wounds are never seen by others, but are felt everyday by a veteran. For some reason, their life has not been filled with a hero’s welcome but with buried stress and anxiety.
Through the assistance of artists & art therapists from Milwaukee VA Hospital, veterans will channel their feelings & tell their stories through art. After a 4 week workshop veterans exhibit their work at the museum. Goal: offer program quarterly.
*Create a sense of accomplishment & self-expression
*Build self-esteem, self-confidence
*Help them to face, conquer their fears & channel their anxieties through art
*Give our veterans a public forum to share their experiences
