Veterans' Voices is an initiative from creator Deprise Brescia. By design we created an art exhibition that was preceded by multiple workshops and classes created to build bridges through art. As part of our mission to support the arts through outreach, we are able to touch the lives of many and uplift ourselves and our communities in the process. The "pay if forward" concept is embraced and demonstrated through a variety of programs. Come join us as we experience the healing power of art.
A year in the making, the amazing work of VetArt.org. All the way from Fallbrook, CA and Vista, these guys came to Paso Robles, CA to make the molds of our veterans faces so they could take them back down to their foundry in San Diego and create these amazing works of art!!! THANK YOU VET ART!!! These works will be in Veterans Voices 3 art exhibition April 2020 at Studios on the Park in Paso Robles, California. Thank you Vet Art, California Arts Council, San Luis Obispo County Arts Council.
Part of the Veterans Voices Project includes workshops with community partners. Together we are building bridges through the arts. Here we worked with Vet Art out of San Diego and brought our veterans in to create bronzes of themselves creating lasting artworks and friendships... This is how we heal! Thank you VETART.org , you are awesome!!! We find inspiration in all the loving, healing and fun filled connections we create along the way... Stay tuned for more!!!
Veteran artists Kevin Larsen and Scott Hickey... We thank you for your hard and talent and for coming all the way from San Diego to work, play and make fabulous art... and did I say play??? Come see the final results in our upcoming art exhibition, “Veterans’ Voices II” in March 2019. Made possible in part by the California Arts Council. Thank you to all the participants!
Our February Family Paint day for Veterans and their families was a wonderful way to try a new art activity. Shells from the sea in all shapes and sizes were the focus. Embellishing frames and designing creative compositions was the fun part. Participants could either keep their work or share it in the March 2019 exhibition at Studios on the Park. Not all participants wished to be filmed, so we accommodate by excluding those individuals.
Our January Family Paint day for Veterans and their families was a wonderful way to get ready for the coming month long exhibition with some fulfilling and bonding art activities. The choice of subject was left up to the individuals. The group mural project was called The American Dream and everyone was encouraged to illustrate their version with or without an explanation. All of the wonderful works that would be on display for sale through the Veterans Voices Returns Art Exhibition.
Our December Family Paint day for Veterans and their families was a wonderful way to get ready for the holidays with some fulfilling and bonding art activities. The choice of projects was left up to the individuals. They could either keep their work or share it in the March 2019 exhibition.
Another Veterans Family Paint Day where our service people and their families were invited to participate in these bonding art activities for free. Perfect meditative art time for all involved. We double dipped with two FREE art activities in the same week only days apart in honor of Veterans Day on the 9th and our regular monthly scheduling of Veterans Family Paint days on the 11th. What a spectacular time by all who participated.
November 9, 2018 we painted faces in SLO at the Farmers Market in honor of Veterans and active military who served and are still serving our country. Our presence and inclusion in the arts is helping to build bridges between our service and civilian communities. Art activities have been proven to be a positive element in ones life, here we are using it to build friendships and remind people life can and should be fun... so get your face painted and laugh a little.
The Veterans Family Paint Days included this amazing collection of mask paintings. This event was filled with fun and creativity for the entire family. Mask painting reveals so much with so many places to explore. This activity was made possible in part by the California Arts Council through the VIA grant awarded through the Paso Robles Art Association for the 2018-2019 grant cycle. Thank you California Arts Council
Another awesome day of art as we kick off casting the faces of some of our veterans for the upcoming Veterans Voices II. Thank you Kevin Larsen and Scott Hickey from VetArt.org for coming all the way from San Diego to do the work, create art and have fun along the way. Thank you for everyone who helped make this happen by participating! Made possible in part by the California Arts Council.
