The PATRIOT ART PROJECT offers FREE ON-LINE art classes, with art supplies, to veterans in the areas of drawing, photography and painting currently through the William Jennings Bryan Dorn VA Medical Center in Columbia, South Carolina.
The vision is to provide veterans a welcoming environment along with the tools to gain a new and inspired sense of purpose, thus creating a positive balance to quality of life. Our hope is that art will give expression to their unique stories and that the forums will create veteran connections to each other and to the public.

"I started painting later in life as a hobby to relieve stress. This "hobby" quickly turned into a passion that has helped me communicate my response to the world around me. I find that I can get more out of life when I create that response for others to view rather than keeping it inside."
