IMPart: Injured Military Personnel + Art

Wed, 2016-09-28 12:09 -- Don Ball

The Art League's IMPart project connects recent injured military personnel with visual arts experiences created for personal enrichment, relaxed social engagement, the improvement and redevelopment of fine motor skills, and expressive catharsis. The project works with volunteers and Fort Belvoir's Warriors in Transition Unit B to bring the arts experience to wounded veterans and their caregivers, and also includes off-site multimedia courses at the USO Warrior and Family Center on Fort Belvoir Military Base and for in-treatment PTSD patients at Ft. Belvoir Hospital.
