SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Local veterans got to show off their amazing art skills in downtown San Diego Wednesday.

Graduate students with Brandman University teamed up with the Veteran Artist Program for today's veteran's art show at Horton Square.

The special fundraiser gave the veterans a chance to practice their art talents, reach a wider audience with their works of art and more importantly, build their self-esteem.

"It's an outlet. It's a way to express myself. I feel like life is about creation. It's about being creative and creativity," Marine Cpl. Jesse Alwin said.

Proceeds from Wednesday's event will go to the Veteran Artist Program and will aid veterans coming home from combat.
