We've been sending art supplies to Soldiers at Ft. Hood since 2014. Ft. Hood was one of the first Army bases to have a Resiliency Art Room for active duty Soldiers. This month we've sent 24 wood frames, 50 Coloring Cards, 50 Origami and 50 Silver Lining Bracelet art kits. Feedback from Ft. Hood is that the Soldiers love the size of our art kits. Each kit contains the art supplies needed to complete an art project in a clear card size envelope.
There is a lot of art happening in the Apace Arts Center at Ft. Hood:
The Resiliency Through Art Program
The room offers a quiet area with all the art materials for Soldiers to create whatever comes to mind. Offered to all active duty Soldiers for free during the weekday until 5 p.m., just sign in at the Hobby Heaven Sales Store. Soldiers may take their work with them or leave it at the center to be displayed and provide inspiration for others.
