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 launched a partnership with the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre to bring art classes to the veterans in our community. This year, the program is expanding to include the veteran’s family members. Operation A.R.T.™ students will have the opportunity to be introduced to a new art medium or continue developing skills in a known medium.
“The great unexpected benefit of taking these classes was interacting with other veterans. I’ve gained some very solid friendships, which I consider a gift beyond a value I can put into words.” – Jim, Veteran
