Thank you so much for your support!
Since 2013, we have witnessed the impact of the Community Art Classes on Veterans and Survivors of Suicide. One veteran shared that he had spent a day making holiday cards for his family. After 7 hours of working on the art project he realized that he had not had pain and did not need to take his medication.
That got us thinking. So, during the pandemic our team set to work to create a book of art prompts for our students to use at home. So often we heard people say “I love this class and want to do this at home, but I don’t know where to begin.” This book is designed to get people started. We took lessons that were enjoyed, prompts we have used or continue to use in our own art practices, and whittled them down to a simple prompt that can be completed in as little as 15 minutes to several depending on your schedule.
