The Valley’s American Healing Arts Foundation serves U.S. veterans by providing them with free art classes, including all supplies, along with art therapy classes taught by certified and licensed art therapists.
You can help during upcoming painting classes at Arizona State University by assisting the instructor with laying out the supplies in the classroom, handing out paper towels, distributing paint on pallets, and helping the teacher with cleanup after the class.
The foundation uses art therapy to help veterans and other first responders who offer their service to country and community by helping them to use art as "a creative and restorative tool," according to the ad on volunteermatch.org.
The painting classes at ASU are Sept. 12-19 in the ASU Upward Bound Classroom, 1250 S. College Ave., Tempe.
For more information on being a volunteer for the class, contact Kimberly Bulot at (480) 228-1695. For more information on the foundation, visit http://americanhealingartsfoundation.com/ .
