ART FOR VETERANS
I am a veteran who began painting after I left the Marine Corps. During my time in service, I met several Marines and Sailors who were very talented and creative people. They inspired me in part to pursue my own creativity. I want to share resources here for veterans, service members, and their families who would like to pursue the arts and find ways to express themselves.
See the resources below for free art classes and other opportunities aimed at supporting veterans and those currently serving!
