A.R.T. always tells a story. Operation A.R.T. classes are a way to express emotions without speaking. In 2017, The Joel Fund launched a program to bring A.R.T. classes to the Veterans in our community. We have since expanded our Operation A.R.T program to include Veteran’s immediate family members and now offer virtual classes for veterans across the U.S. Operation A.R.T. students have the opportunity to be introduced to new art skills or to continue developing in new proficiencies in different A.R.T classes.
“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
