Veterans and Canvas Frame a Fun Evening on Campus
April 18, 2016
"Vets & Canvas" -- a first-ever fun evening with Art and Food happened on campus April 8th. Over 20 Veterans and their guests enjoyed a great meal, instruction from local artist Cody Heichel, and brought home their very own masterpiece!
The event was envisioned by our own Student-Veteran Advocate Shane Wiegerig, along with the Office of Suicide Prevention's Matt Fullen. In addition to learning how to paint like a pro, attendees also learned strategies to combat the suicide issues facing some of our Veterans. The participants raved about the evening and it looks like we have some budding Picassos!
