ASHES TO ART: Finding Joy and Purpose in Adversity


Lori Joseph, the creator of Ashes to Art Workshop, teaches us to find joy and purpose during and after adversity and tragedy. In 2012, Lori Joseph coordinated artists throughout the country to create artwork using charcoal from the Colorado wildfires. The artwork was auctioned to raise funds for the Poudre Canyon Fire Dept.. She now uses her Ashes to Art Workshop to help people creatively explore their feelings after adversity, by finding ways to serve others through action. Joseph encourages us to seek those opportunities, bringing more joy into our lives. Join us on our YouTube Channel for a live discussion on Sept 3 at 12:30 pm. – post questions in the comments while we are live. Replay will be available shortly after.
