VSA Vermont, Inc.
$1,700 - Arts Program
This grant will help to support two 12-week arts workshops, meeting for one hour a week over 12 weeks, for veterans receiving services through the Veterans Administration Medical Center (VAMC) of White River Junction. Each 12-week workshop is designed to offer artistic skill-building with intensive personal mentoring by skilled artists, confident self-expression and opportunities for social interaction both within each class and at community-based displays of artwork. Veterans will have the option of taking videography in the south/central location or drumming in the northern location. Grant funds will help to support the purchase of programmatic equipment. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000838-01).
