The Veterans Art Project (VETART)

Services Provided: Education, Healthcare, Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Services, SDMFC Member

Mission: The Veterans Art Project’s (VETART) most basic mission is to teach, make, and share art. VETART’s down-to-earth, open-minded, actions-speak-louder-than-words culture is accessible and simple. VETART approaches art, and teaching art, believing that a society gains a vastly deepened network of visual/psychological power and cohesion by cultivating a visual artistic language that can be shared by all people to all people. For service men and women and their families, the reliance on power and cohesion is strong. VETART uses art and teaching art as a bridge for soldiers and their families to maintain hope and comfort through power, cohesion and engagement as they deal with their conditions.

Vision: To expand learning and artistic opportunities to all who wish to activate their unique artistic vision.
