On September 22nd, Art from Ashes hosted our first-ever Zoom event, Pastries and Poetry, and it was so much fun, we’ve decided to do it again on Nov 10th! Here’s the link for Part 2: givelively.org/event/art-from-ashes-inc/pastries-and-poetry-pt-2
The first event was held live from the kitchen of FNG on West 32nd Avenue in Denver. We want to thank Chef Brian Smith, pastry chef for TAG Restaurant Group, and our own Program Manager and Lead Facilitator Laura Peña, for leading a lively group of participants in making their very own Lemon-Blueberry Trifle dessert in the comfort of their own kitchens.
After seeing them in action, we wouldn’t be surprised if Brian and Laura get recruited to host their own show! While delicious smells wafted from everyone’s ovens, we were proud to showcase the creative genius of several of our youth poets, and guest poet Kylee Wellons. Most of the poems shared by our youth were written in AfA Phoenix Rising workshops in just three minutes – amazing!
Participants at home were able to share the fun with their families, including children and babies of both the human and fur variety. We were so honored to be invited into your homes through the magic of modern technology. Thank you to everyone for your support of Art from Ashes (both financial and otherwise)!
