On August 27, 2016, the alumni of the Art of Life Canvas Program came together to create beautiful works of art under the supervision of Artistic Director Julie Copeland. The participants painted on wooden boards messages and images of hope, love, courage, and support. These boards will be permanently displayed at The Art of Life Healing Garden in Woodward Park. People’s Church of Fresno generously donated space in their Student Ministries center for our survivors to gather and enjoy: breakfast, shopping at the Art of Life store & Square Heart Shop, a photo booth, Painting and comradery. We are so grateful to all of the many volunteers that help make this event possible.
