2015 : Paula Project
On August 29, 2015, returning participants of the Art of Life Canvas program gathered together to reignite their passion for art at the Annual Paula Project. Under the direction of Artistic Director Julie Copeland, each participant created a mosaic garden stepping stone that will become a permanent part of The Art of Life Healing Garden. The morning was filled with laughter, creativity, and bonding among survivors and special guests from Paula Doherty’s family. Some of Paula’s closest friends (dubbed Paula’s Peeps) volunteer at this event each year as a way of honoring her life and this special project.
