IMPART the Power of Art!

On April 9, The Art League is raising much-needed funds for our IMPART outreach program, a program that provides the powerful and transformative outlet of the visual arts to recently Injured Military Personnel from Ft. Belvoir, aiding in their transition to health and healing.

IMPART has a profound individual impact, as program participant and Wounded Warrior Sergeant First Class Will Roberts shared in a note with us:

“I want to write to personally thank you for helping us heal both physically and mentally and for creating an atmosphere of joy and happiness. I wish that there could be a place like this with people like you in every state.”

And, by the experience of IMPART participant and Wounded Warrior Army Staff Sergeant Jon Meadows:

“Meadows’ doctor at Fort Belvoir was hesitant to allow Meadows’ participation in IMPART, fearing it would be too much strain. ‘He wasn’t sure because of how bad I was at first,’ Meadows said. ‘But he knew I loved it, so he let me keep exploring it.’ After his doctor saw the sculptures, Meadows said, ‘he was blown away. He said it opened up a channel for me.”

Our goal is to raise $25,000 – ensuring six soldiers and their tech escorts/caregivers can go through a year of this life-changing program.

The IMPART program is a special collaboration between The Art League and the Wounded Warriors in Transition Unit B at Ft. Belvoir Military Base. (The I.M.P. in IMPART stands for Injured Military Personnel and A.R.T. stands for art!) The Art League provides hands-on art instruction for recently Injured Military Personnel both onsite, at our Madison Annex studio facility, and at Fort Belvoir Military Base for those who are in in-patient hospital care. The focus is on hand-eye coordination, redeveloping fine-motor skills, and creative problem solving in a relaxing yet engaging environment. Personal enrichment, social connection, and expressive catharsis are key components of the program.

If you had the chance to see the IMPART Ceramics Exhibit in the Gallery this past December or read the recent Washington Post article, you know how extraordinary and far reaching the benefits of this program are.
