Event Details

ARTiVets top

We will be looking to create art, jewelry, projects in support of Military/Veterans and their Families. You can join as a "virtual" show or come to the local show which will be at TLS Veterans in the Veteran Resource Center at 5330 W. Elm Street, McHenry, IL.

WHENE: JUNE 20, 2013 (Thursday)
TIME: 11:30am - 6:00pm

FREE EVENT for all registered - others $2 donation to VRC.

This event is organized to show support for our Veterans especially our disabled Veterans - where the focus is on individual ability not disability. It is meant to create projects that will connect to other Vets, their families and to the local community through Art.

Some things happening are:

  • Artists and Crafters will demo their work and even let you try some crafts to take home with you.
  • We will hand create our own ArtBlox & PhotoBlox to update the magnetic wall of honor at the Veteran Resource Center.
  • We will have a temporary tattoo & airbrush artist (possibly)
  • Kid crafts (Nature, upcycle, patriotic and other)
  • We will use photos, wood, parachord, paint, upcycled objects, metal stamping, and so much more.
  • TLS Veterans will host a screening of The Invisible War - if all permits

Any crafts/art is welcome - this does not need to be patriotic/military/veteran specific. 

It is to create art/crafts that heal the soul and beautify the Center and it's clients.

All supplies are to be supplied by the Artist/Vendor/Organizers.
Crafts done by volunteers/others will be supplied by Etsy, The Crafty Kid, ARTiBILITY & SIRRELL, INC.
