Art on the Homefront

Art on the Homefront - Register Below

Creative Forces Community Engagement Grant is funded in part by Creative Forces®: NEA Military Healing Arts Network, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with the U.S. Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs that seeks to improve the health, well-being, and quality of life for military and veteran populations exposed to trauma, as well as their families and caregivers. Creative Forces is managed in partnership with Civic Arts, the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, and Mid-America Arts Alliance. Learn more at creativeforcesnrc.arts.gov, National Endowment for the Arts, Creative Forces, Mid-America Arts Alliance and Elsa's Eclectic Home & Studio.

Throughout the next year we will be holding art workshops, both in-person and virtual, each month for veteran and military caregivers, their children, the veteran and caregiver and the entire family. Please continue to check our website for additional information.

 


Please only register if you plan on attending. Two registrations with unexcused no-shows in a row will result in a three month restriction on registration for future Art on the Homefront classes.
