About this Event:
heARTS for Healing, Inc is a creative outlet for those who suffer from anxiety, PTSD, mental issues, physical concerns, stress, and other related issues. It is a way for them to take their mind and focus on something else besides the side effects left from war. Our mission is to show our veterans, military members, caregivers, families and others in need of an outlet that can help them focus on creativity and using the imagination to create a masterpiece or help them tell their stories using different artistic methods. Art therapy is considered by many as a mind-body connection that can influence physiological and psychological symptoms.
We will be teaching different mediums of art along with other activities each month. All of our instructors are volunteers in the arts or specialized in the class they will be teaching. We will have classes each month for veterans, military members, caregivers, families and others who need our classes. Every six months we will have art shows or displays of the finished pieces to view or to purchase from them. We want to be able to offer these classes to veterans, military members, caregivers, families and others free of charge.
We have expanded what we are doing! We have added yoga, mindfulness, nutrition-meal planning classes, pottery, creative writing workshops, retreats for caregivers, fishing, and horse care. We are excited to announce that will be at VA and VA Whole Health starting in August 2020. We hope to expand in 2020 to all that need art therapy.
