Deb DeLisi, soon after losing a daughter to suicide in 2014, started the Abundant Love Project in California by leaving colorful, hand-painted stones in public places with the intention of bringing smiles to those who find them. Each stone is inscribed with the message “you are loved.”

Artists from local arts studio, Bottle & Bottega, will lead the classes where participants will paint river rocks and take them home after the event. The events are hosted by AvMed and are part of its monthly AvMed Connect series, which gives the community a chance to explore new topics and share interests with others.
