At Artists for Awareness, Inc. we understand the challenges that our military and veterans face, not just in combat, but also in returning home. With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury affecting so many brave men and women in uniform, having a method of healing through art can have a tremendous impact on their mental well being. Art expresses emotions that words alone cannot. Our organization strives to give those veteran artists a voice as well as introduce art to suffering veterans and grieving family members.
All donations to Artists for Awareness, Inc. will go towards funding art workshops in order to teach veterans and grieving families the fundamentals and techniques of art to allow them to cope and heal using artistic expression as well as promoting veteran art through an art exhibition.
Check out the February 2014 issue of Combat Stress Magazine featuring work from some of our artists.
