Art Your Grief Classes with Emily Dilbeck- March 6th, 13th, & 27th, 2022Read Now
Art Your Grief Classes with Emily Dilbeck
March 6th, 13th, & 27th, Sundays 3:30 - 4:45 PM PT
Art Your Grief classes are for grievers. Grief comes in many different forms - this class is for anyone experiencing grief - it might be a diagnosis, a death, a relationship, job loss, a dream, a home, etc. All grievers are welcome. No art experience is needed to take an Art Your Grief class. All you need is to bring yourself and
be willing to show up and try painting, drawing and collage to process your grief. Explore and express your grief using art on Zoom in a safe space with other grievers. Emily will be walking you through different prompts with basic art supplies (watercolor, colored pencils, collage - nothing fancy) to help you connect
with your grief while creating. The goal is not to create beautiful art (although sometimes this happens),
the focus is on your grief and having a designated safe space to connect and express your grief using color, texture, and movement. Art is a powerful tool to express and explore grief. There is something beautiful
that happens when we sit with it all - even if it’s extremely difficult to do.
If you don't want to commit to all 3 classes, you can take the one-time workshop on
March 12th, from 9:30 - 10:45 AM PT for just $30.
Next class series: March 6th, 13th, & 27th, Sundays 3:30 - 4:45 PM PT on Zoom, 75 minute sessions,
$90 for the class series. The first 60 min. are for creating, the last 15 are for optional sharing/listening
(or you can continue creating). Please message Emily on Instagram to sign up. She only takes a handful
of participants each month as it is important to me to keep it small and intimate.
Private Sessions: You can schedule private Art Your Grief sessions if that’s more your jam. An hour class is $65.
Buddy Sessions: You can schedule buddy sessions of Art Your Grief for 2-4 people. An hour buddy session
for 2 people is $45 per person, 3 people is $40 per person, 4 people is $35 per person.
Private Class: You can schedule a private class for 5-7 people for 4 sessions of 75 minutes each for $120 a person. The first 60 min. are for creating, the last 15 are for optional sharing/listening.
For more information, check out the Art Your Grief Instagram page. The highlight titled “Class Info.” has all
the details. Please message Emily on Instagram is you have questions or want to register for a class.

Valentine's Day 2022Read Now
Valentine's Day 2022
"The loss is immeasurable but so is the LOVE.” – Unknown
Let us remember those who are missing their beloved Valentine this weekend and reach out to show them love.
Valentine's Day can be a painful reminder of the physical absence of those we love who we are missing.
It can poignantly prompt memories of those who have died or those we are estranged from.
Many of us would prefer to skip February 14th all together, which is totally understandable.
If you are hurting today because you are feeling the grief strongly, please do what you need to
do to take loving care of yourself and to just make it through this day.
If you are up for it, this day can present a beautiful opportunity to celebrate all of the joy the ones we
have lost have gifted us, and the chance to honor their memory in the ways that feel special.
Here are a few ideas:
- Light a candle in their honor
- Write a letter telling them all the things you love about them
- Do something today that they enjoyed or you had fun doing together
- Call or text a friend or family member and tell them how much they mean to you
- Treat yourself to a special meal or one of their favorite dishes
- Get a massage or take a hot bath
- Make a donation to their favorite charity
- Buy yourself flowers or chocolates
Sending you wishes for a gentle day and hoping the loss does not overshadow the love.
