‘Hidden Heroes’ Therapeutic Arts FREE for Veterans’ Caregivers

Monthly Therapeutic Arts Events for Caregivers Offered at the Hampton VA

Caregivers of Military Vets are Invited to Attend

Tidewater Arts Outreach offers free, monthly respite sessions to Hampton Roads military caregivers at the Hampton VA in 2017.  The two-hour sessions are held monthly on the third Tuesday and feature a variety of arts interventions, including visual arts, songwriting, drumming, drama and written word.  Except in August, when the workshop (detailed below) is presented on August 29.

The workshops are funded by the Elizabeth Dole Foundation’s Hidden Heroes Project.

Drexel University recently published an article about the benefits of arts engagement, even by those with little to no previous arts experience.

Our September workshop will be Mask-Making.  This Psychology Today article shares why mask-making is one of the top tools used by art therapists.
