How can the arts—visual arts, theatre, and creative writing—offer veterans, service members, and military families avenues of expression, healing, and reflection? This series of workshops connects Americans who have served in the military in Iraq or Afghanistan with artists and art therapy practitioners through two types of workshop environments: a studio art setting, for artistic exchange between teachers and participants, as well as a “artist-teachers teaching teachers” model, for artists or art therapists who are now working, or hope to work, within military communities.
