Therapy program helps veterans through art

Posted

The Castle Rock Artist Cooperative, in partnership with the Douglas County Veterans Monument Foundation, is looking for veterans who live in Douglas County who could benefit from the therapeutic effects of art.

The cooperative will launch the Veterans Art Therapy program April 1 and is looking for 10 students who have been honorably discharged from the military. Classes will meet for three hours each week for 26 straight weeks. The program will take place at Hobby Lobby, 1361 New Beale St., Suite 200, in the Promenade in Castle Rock, and will be taught by Carol Hein, a local painter. The program will culminate with an art show that will be open to the public.

Those who are interested are asked to email castlerockartcoop@gmail.com and provide name, address, branch of service and years active, as well as a short description of why you feel that you would benefit from the program.
