My name is Scott Hickey. I am an Army Veteran who discovered the VetArt program in 2015. This program helped me to realize that I have much to offer other Veterans who find themselves in challenging situations. I use the creative process as a form of therapy to work through what I would consider daily obstacles and struggles. This process helps me to not only acknowledge and deal with these obstacles, but to make them a part of the subject matter of my work. I find the result cleansing to the soul.
Coping through Art
Creating art is my form of meditation. I can focus on the task at hand and let go of the worries that everyday life throws at me. As an instructor I get to experience true happiness seeing a fellow veteran create something when they thought they couldn't.
