The Art of Grief - For Adults Grieving the Loss of a Loved One

Dates
Display dates: 
Saturdays: Sept. 14, Oct. 5, Nov. 16 and Dec. 14

Instructor: Carolyn Holder, MA, LPC, Grief Conselor-Expressive Arts Therapist

Healing from our grief is not a process of forgetting. It is a process of remembering. Art making and sharing in a group setting allows individuals begin to understand their own difficulties and strengths as well as discover new possibilities to cope with loss. Participants will begin the healing process through expressive arts including clay work, journaling, collage and other expressive outlets. Participants are invited to share in a safe, supportive environment in hopes to discover the strength to rebuild. No artistic experience necessary.
