The loss of a spouse, a child, a family member, a friend, or even a beloved pet can be a very trying time, indeed. This course is designed to help you navigate the grieving process through the use of art. Students will discover the benefits of creating colorful and fun art projects while learning drawing and painting techniques combined with collage and found objects. We’ll also use writing exercises and journaling to help in understanding difficult emotions and promote healing. All materials are included.
Please note, this is not an art therapy class.
