Belmont students teach art classes to former addicts

At Room in the Inn shelter in downtown Nashville, several Belmont University students turn out every Friday morning to teach art therapy classes to men in the Odyssey Program, a program for recovering addicts. And on March 19, Belmont University hosted “A Place at the Table,” an exhibit featuring art created by residents of Room in the Inn’s Campus for Human Development.

Below, you’ll find a video story with footage from one of these art classes, a slide show featuring artwork from the exhibit with reactions from those in attendance and a map of local homeless services.
