Adult Introductory July-Aug

BreneBrownThe Phoenix Rising process is designed to allow participants to recognize their inherent creative power and how perception affects our identity and our reality. Art from Ashes uses the latest research in left-brain/right-brain functioning and the role of creativity in transformation to encourage participants to access the creative subconscious and the power available through artistic expression. The introductory workshop allows adults to experience the same curriculum delivered to the youth participants and find their own power through creative expression and personal transformation.

Workshops are limited to six people.

The investment in adult workshops of $175 per 6-week series helps support our work with youth.
