Papermaking with Veterans

Today I finished teaching a 5 week papermaking course through Veterans Affairs with art therapist/metalsmith/fellow AIR Maria Tritico. In addition to making books & personal pieces, they collaborated on a large collage and they cast into my big face mold and we sewed it together with a student's sailor's palm. Given my personal experience with veterans in my family, it was a powerful experience for us all. Art making is therapy.
