We are the proud sponsor of a program that gives US Military Veterans the opportunity to create fine art.  This is a weekly class to which Veterans can attend, at no charge, supplies included.  Veterans participating in the class also have their membership in OSA sponsored.  Dan said “I am a veteran and a budding artist.  It has made my life so much more satisfying”.  

Class is taught by classically trained OSA art instructors both in-person and online.   Annually, we celebrate their creations with a special show in our Gallery in November.  Over the past four years, this program has created a welcoming, safe, community for those who have served our country. Friendships have been developed along with artistic abilities.  Veteran art talent comes from all quarters and branches of military service. From the officer corps to noncoms and enlisted. The art submitted to OSA’s yearend show, is both inspiring, personal and powerful art expressions of those who’ve served.
