“Through the creative process healing can take place”
Peter Rubino, veteran and renowned artist, has joined forces with Union County Entrepreneurs to organize and grow a new program that embraces his passion of sharing his gift of artistic talent with the veteran community. The mission is to offer veterans free art classes, including materials in a comfortable workspace where they can express their feelings and discover their talents. Peter provides creative and healing support with an opportunity for veterans to create works of art that have meaning to them. Currently there are 6 veterans enrolled in his first 5-week sculpting class where they are learning how to sculpt a portrait in clay. Classes meet once a week for three hours and veterans can take as many classes as they choose. The goal is to have a fully equipped fine art center, exclusively for veterans, in Union County. A space where veterans can pursue their passion through the creative process so healing can take place!
Class are ongoing and you can start any week. Classes are presently on hold until May due to virus.
