Artistry • Reconnection • Transformation

A.R.T. always tells a story. A.R.T. is a way to share without speaking. In 2017, The Joel Fund Operation A.R.T. to bring art classes to the veterans in our community.  In 2018, the program expanded to include veteran’s immediate family members.  Operation A.R.T.™ students have the opportunity to be introduced to a new art medium or continue developing skills in a known medium.
