Resilience Through Art Work Space Program

The Fort Novosel Arts & Crafts Center Resiliency through Art programs is not an Art Class.  No prior art experience is needed or required. Instead, we encourage participants to explore various art mediums with open expectations, concentrating on the process of creativity, not the end product. This program focuses on the process of personal expression through art, in a small group setting. Participants will find art naturally relaxing when used in the supportive environment of the Arts & Crafts Center. Free to Service Members and Retirees. EFMP Friendly.
