About Art Spark Texas: 

Art Spark Texas challenges perceptions of how people contribute by creating an arts-inspired, inclusive community of individuals with diverse abilities. 

Recognizing that every person has a voice that deserves to be heard, we offer programs that enable educational and career success, enhance personal growth, provide support and training to the public, and offer individuals of all ages access to the creative work of people with diverse abilities. We reach individuals who have difficulty leaving their homes, older adults who are isolated and alone, veterans and their family members, students with Autism and other developmental disabilities, theatergoers who are blind and many more individuals who may be underrepresented or overlooked. 

Art Spark Texas provides services for current and prior military members and family. The arts are important to veterans because, for many military personnel, the arts are a way to express what they saw, heard, and experienced during service. Additionally, our programs offer veterans a chance to interact with other veterans and expand their support networks.
