Operation: Art of Valor

Operation: Art of Valor is a community-based art program that provides opportunities for creative self-expression outside of clinical care. It began in 2018 as a partnership with the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital to offer glassblowing to military patients and veterans through structured, hands-on learning that focuses on improving cognition, teamwork, and confidence. Since 2018, the Morean Arts Center has expanded into photography and ceramics. FREE to participants, it is limited to Veterans ONLY. Please click the links above for registration and program details.
