Arts in Service

Thanks to a generous grant from The Boeing Company, Mesa Arts Center is launching Arts in Service, a program that will provide creative pathways for veterans and active duty members to use studio arts experiences in reaching their personal goals, whether those are finding a supportive community, stress relief, working toward overall health and wellness, or pursuing career interests in art-making. 

 

Studio art classes will be made available for free to veterans and service members. Questions? E-mail engagement@mesaartscenter.com about Arts in Service opportunities.

  

 

  

“The Arts in Service program is valuable for many reasons. Being in a group of veterans who share the experience of military service is indescribable. Seeing my peers with service-related injuries, and stresses alongside me means many things. Not having to explain my experiences which define me and are, frankly, unrelatable to the majority of Americans is a relief... I feel comfortable to learn what I can, at my own speed.”  –Caryn Walsh, USAF Veteran
