A Collective Case Study Of Veterans In An Arts And Crafts Program, Cindy Hasio

Marilyn Zurmuehlen Working Papers in Art Education

Abstract

Agostinone-Wilson (2001) described how a community’s interests and values can be reflected through the expressions of using craft items and creative activities.

As a result, the veterans involved in the arts and crafts community gained knowledge through a broader sense of humanity and collaboration and encouraged them to have a positive learning experience.
