Painting Workshop - Artists for Trauma

Painting Workshop

Adaptive Painting Workshop

May 24-25, 2014
Artists for Trauma was thrilled to provide and facilitate its signature adaptive painting workshop for Triumph Foundation’s annual Sports Weekend/Wheelchair Sports Festival. 8 Artists for Trauma artists compassionately guided 350 spinal cord injury survivors and their family members through the act of self-expression as they engaged with painting and drawing materials throughout the day. It was a busy, inspiring, and empowering day as paper, paint, and markers turned marks into masterpieces.
“It was relaxing and enjoyable.”
“Freedom to create anything. No restrictions!”
“I loved the energy of the AFT volunteers and the art supplies, kinetic sand, and the painting.”

Artistic, adaptive and empowering healing workshops

Artists for Trauma holds a wide array of small to large scale, adaptive arts and entertainment workshops to provide and facilitate empowering healing experiences for participating adult trauma survivors, their family members and care givers.

A large unique component of Artists For Trauma (AFT) is the wonderful generosity of our volunteer AFT artists. These artists are established and highly acclaimed in their various disciplines and artistic communities and richly give back to the community through the blessing of their talent.

Through strategic partnerships, Artists for Trauma, our volunteer artists and other local, national and international individuals and organizations collaborate to provide adaptive, post acute, integrative health services to disfigured and disabled trauma survivors. Artists for Trauma staff and artists facilitate our signature creative, compassionate, free of charge, body, mind and spirit workshops.

We invite you to observe the joyful transformation and impact of the extraordinary Artists for Trauma healing through art experience for the recovering trauma survivor.
