This exhibition is open only to Veterans who have participated in the monthly Art sessions over the previous year.

“Great Art Program!! Sometimes I surprise myself on some art projects, that I did not possibly could do. Doing Art is giving part of me to you. And that is a good thing!! Thank you!”This program is supported by AAG donations and funding from the Arizona Arts Alliance, and is designed to provide meaningful art instruction to Veterans of US Military Service for free to the Vets. Since June 2014, this program has helped, on average, 15 vets each month, learn how to be an artist.

“I love this, I like the variety of mediums and projects. I look forward to coming here, very much, so relaxing. I’m grateful for having the opportunity. Instructors are so helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you”

“This program is really great. Since I’ve been coming here, I have learned how to deal with my PTSD in a more positive way. The staff is very respectful and knowledgeable. I love and look forward to each and every class!”
