We have been around for over 10 years now; and our art group is open to all Veterans & Ex Service Personnel and their families. The aim of the group is enjoy and part take in art using it as a coping mechanism for the effects of PTSD and preventing social isolation within this community. Students learn sketching with pencils, charcoal, pen and ink as well as painting in Water-colours, Pastels, Acrylics and Oils all in a very friendly atmosphere. We meet weekly on a Tuesday mornings at the Veterans' Community Centre in Passage street, Cleveland. We hope to hold an exhibition within the next 12months.
