Art Saves: Stories, Inspiration and Prompts Sharing the Power of Art
Readers see how, through our various artistic releases, they can connect with a deeper part of themselves, escape from the challenges and pressures of life and also connect with those in need. They will be inspired seeing how 20 artists have used their talent and passion to elevate and infuse their lives with beauty and meaning. Art can be a quilt, a collage, a stamped card, a poem, a musical performance, a well-loved garden, a delicious meal, a warm conversation and more. In addition to reading the various artists' stories and being inspired by the beautiful photos in this book, readers are also walked step-by-step through a project from each artist and tips on how they can use art in a similar way in their own lives. Stories include: Danita who used art journals to help her out of depression; Rebecca Sower who is empowering a creative group of women in Haiti to build self-sufficiency; and, LK Ludwig who found a voice that she knew could not be silenced through her art.
