MilitaryConnection.com is pleased to announce the launch of Veteran Art Connection, a joint partnership with Visions for Vets that features an online gallery of art produced by America’s military heroes. The artwork, created by Veterans as a method of therapeutic release, will be featured and available for purchase in an online gallery.
Visions for Vets, based in St. Louis, Missouri, is a program designed by a Veteran, for Veterans. It utilizes art therapy techniques as a treatment for PTSD, lifelong disabilities, and other issues that might be a result of military service. For years, Visions for Vets has been a safe outlet for self-expression and a critical step in the healing process. Through this partnership with MilitaryConnection.com, Veterans are able to turn the results of their therapy into an entrepreneurial opportunity.
Art therapy has been proven to be an effective therapeutic method in the relief and reduction of tension and anxiety. For our Service men and women, it also provides the opportunity for self-expression, healing, and achievement of self-awareness. Many of these Veterans have been on disability and unable to work since leaving active duty. Veteran Art Connection supplies these men and women with a unique opportunity to heal their invisible wounds through the power of art while establishing a possible revenue stream for their future.
