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 - April 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 April 2023.
🎨 Sunday classes: April 2, 16, 23, 30 (4 meetings - we won’t be meeting on Easter Sunday)
from 3:30-4:45 pm PT/ 5:30-6:45 pm CT on zoom $120
🎨 Tuesday classes: April 4, 11, 18, 25 (4 meetings) from 6:30-7:45 pm PT / 8:30-9:45 pm CT on zoom $120

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 keeping it small and intimate is important.
Emily will walk you through several prompts/techniques to help you express and explore grief with art.
NO art skills are necessary!
Private Sessions: You can schedule private Art Your Grief sessions, 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.

Conscious Grief Series 4: FREE interview series
March 11th - 24, 2023
Tara Nash has interviewed individuals who have experienced bereavement from spouses, parents, children,
and siblings. There are specific interviews about suicide loss and the complexity of this bereavement.
Each speaker shares their experience and what has helped them, ranging from therapy, creativity, reiki,
nutrition, rituals, yoga and spirituality. This series explores ALL kinds of grief because loss comes in many
different forms – from death to relationships to dementia, to aging, getting sober, losing jobs and so on. This
is why I have organized this free event, so that YOU can have a guide on how to navigate grief consciously.
We have all experienced some form of loss and I believe that if we grieve consciously, we will be healthier,
happier, and more connected human beings. In this series you will hear personal stories from 21 experts
ranging from coaches, therapists, authors, mediums and many more. They will share their experience of how
they navigated this hard process we call GRIEF. There will also be free gifts from many of the speakers, so
do not miss out on tools to help you while you grieve. Are you ready to join the conscious grief movement?
