‘Continuum’ Conversation – The Aftermath of War: A Conversation of Mental Health

WMA will host a short lecture with a conversation panel lead by psychiatrist Dr. Leona Graham. Dr. Graham will focus on the mental health obstacles many veterans, families of veterans, and communities face after wartime — both currently and historically.

The panel will acknowledge these issues while discussing the tools society, veterans, and psychiatry have to combat further trauma. Our panel will include a local mental health professional and regional veterans of different generations to share their perspective, as well as answer any questions from the audience as a moderated Q&A will take place.

All Continuum Conversation events will be held in WMA’s Main Gallery.

Youth Art Education Policy

Outside of tours, family days, and open house events, individuals who are not enrolled in a class are not allowed in WMA classrooms except by written permission of the Executive Director. Parents may not join children in the classroom during instruction times in order to ensure an atmosphere conductive to creativity. It is important to limit the number of adults to keep the focus on the kids, their learning, and to accommodate limited seating in the studio. Parents are welcome to stay in the museum during class but must remain outside of the classroom during instruction time.

Museum educators are experienced in creating positive learning environments for all ages and are required to go through a background check to ensure the safety of our students. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the studio at the end of class to see what their child has created. All docents and volunteers working with children are also required to go through background checks.

Thank you for understanding our policy and priority on the safety and well-being of participating students.

Throughout the year, WMA will host “Meet the Educator” days where parents and their children can come to the classroom to meet the instructor before beginning classes and camps. 2019’s schedule is as follows: January 30 from 4pm-6pm, May 29 from 4pm-6pm, and August 28 from 4pm-6pm.
