Description

David J. Drakulich Foundation For Freedom of Expression (aka DJD Foundation) offers art and recreation programming to veterans and the military connected community. The military connected community consists of individuals who are currently serving or are related to service members and veterans through family ties and friendships. Our programs include Veterans Art Project (VAP) : The Veterans Art Project is held at VA Sierra Nevada Health Care. Veterans are taught the visual arts to include drawing, painting and framing. Classes meet twice weekly; each veteran is met exactly where they are artistically, then nurtured, instructed and assisted in the development of the artistic skills to take them to the next level. These classes allow the veteran artists to have a voice, to facilitate the healing of war wounds through the arts. It is offered at no cost and is open to enrollees of the VA.
