Infantry Art

img04

Infantry Art is a form of art therapy for men and women who have served and are affected by Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress (PTS). Our method involves constructing a mortar, but instead of firing lethal explosives, it fires paint onto a canvas. Explosive art creates a dramatic and chaotic image which can be used by the artist to describe their pain and anguish when creating their work. 

Our goal, as an organization, is to empower everyone through multiple methods. No person is the same, which is why no outreach should be the same. We strive to create bonds and lasting friendships, and this form of therapy has been some of the most successful to date.

All sessions are overseen by trained professionals, which makes this form of therapy more exciting and still cathartic. We hope that by doing this, those who need a more creative outlet can find what they are looking for.
