Art Your Grief Classes with Emily Dilbeck
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.
Next class series - February 2023:
This time of year can be especially difficult for those grieving. If you are wanting some extra support
and care during this time - please consider joining the month long class for January 2023.
