Intern/Grant Writer/Marketing Volunteer, Warrior's Art Room, Inc., Westfield, MA

Warrior’s Art Room, Inc.'s purpose is to provide veterans and active duty members of the Armed Forces of the United States of America and their immediate families with a location for which they can receive instruction in the creation of art, encouragement to create said art, the display of works created, and to promote the creation of art to the veteran community.

The creation of and the instruction provided will not be limited to one medium, but will instead encourage the use of all mediums and forms of art. We shall provide education by conducting workshops, one on one mentoring, free lectures, and informal classes. From time to time we will host presentations/gallery exhibits of completed works and generate public awareness of our efforts. Art has been used since the beginning of time for communicating feelings and emotions. Before there was written languages there was art. Some still exists on cave walls. Art can be made using just about anything at anytime. Having special tools are nice but not necessary. A quick doodle is art just as is a bronze sculpture; one is not more powerful than the other in context. Art can be created by one’s self or with others. It excels at bringing people, friends, lovers, and families together, through creating together.
